BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet

It’s three months past Mardi Gras, but Lafayette, LA-based workhorse BeauSoleil aims to keep the Cajun spirit kicking year-round. Fronted by acclaimed fiddler and vocalist Michael Doucet, and featuring the profoundly talented supporting cast of David Doucet, Billy Ware, Mitchell Reed and Tommy Alesi, the staunchly Acadian collective has racked up nearly a dozen Grammy nods over the course of its 40-year existence and continues to tour hard. The group’s most recent LP, 2013’s groove-oriented From Bamako to Carencro, incorporated some more straightforward jazz and blues styles into the established zydeco mix, in addition to the album’s titular West African flavors.
