BeauSoliel avec Michel Doucet
August 24 @ 7:30 pm
“Best Cajun band in the world” declares Prairie Home Companion’s Garrison Keillor. BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet has been making some of the most potent and popular Cajun music on the planet for the past 37 years. Born out of the rich Acadian ancestry of its members, and created and driven by bandleader Michael Doucet’s spellbinding fiddle playing and soulful vocals, BeauSoleil is notorious for bringing even the most staid audience to its feet. BeauSoleil’s distinctive sound derives from the distilled spirits of New Orleans jazz, blues rock, folk, swamp pop, Zydeco, country and bluegrass, captivating listeners from the Jazz and Heritage Festival in New Orleans, to Carnegie Hall, then all the way across the pond to the Richard Thompson’s Meltdown Festival in England. Two-time Grammy winners, 11-time Grammy nominees – on stage this summer in Boothbay Harbor! Advance tickets $25, day of show $30.
