7:30 p.m. Friday, April 1 – Hering Auditorium
For the past 45 years, BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet has been making some of the most potent and popular Cajun music on the planet. They are now back on the road with their farewell tour “One Last Time – Au Revoir!” 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. Since becoming the first Cajun band to win a GRAMMY with “L’amour Ou La Folie” and then a second Grammy, “Live at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival”, BeauSoleil has garnered many accolades, including twelve GRAMMY nominations. Their music is so integral to the Cajun culture that they have been featured on the New Orleans–based hit HBO program “Treme.” Critics unanimously agree that it is “bon temps, every time they play,” (New York Times).
