You'd have a tough time finding a band from New Orleans that doesn't pay tribute to their home town, and equally hard pressed to find a band more steeped in the bayou tradition than BeauSoleil. Specializing in the Zydeco of the Louisiana Bayou, BeauSoleil carry the Creole torch nationwide.
Founded in 1975, BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet are one of the most well known bands playing in the Cajun and Creole tradition. They mix their swamp style with Tex-Mex, Country, Blues, and Rock switching elegantly between genre and language. Don't be surprised if you hear English and Cajun French in the same song. Hailed by Garrison Keillor as "the best Cajun band in the world," BeauSoleil have become regulars on Prairie Home Companion, and have also held guest spots on Emeril Live, Late Night With Conan O'Brien, and Austin City Limits.
This fall, the Fairfield Theatre Company invites you to come on down and laissez le bon temps rouler avec BeauSoleil.
