BeauSoleil

Over nearly four decades of exploring the panorama of Louisiana music, BeauSoleil and leader Michael Doucet have re-created a culture and become its ambassadors. They're named not for sunshine but for Joseph Broussard dit Beausoleil, the leader of the Acadian resistance to British deportation efforts beginning in 1755. You can come to a BeauSoleil concert to party or to experience musical history through the group's mix of Cajun, zydeco, country, blues, bluegrass, Tex-Mex, and Afro-Caribbean sounds! Cajun bands come and go, but BeauSoleil endures and just keeps getting better. That's because, in the words of Allen Toussaint, "they play music that's honest to the bone."
