Since forming in 1975, Grammy winners BeauSoleil have claimed their undisputed role as the most esteemed Cajun group in music. BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet take the rich Cajun traditions of Louisiana and artfully blend elements of zydeco, New Orleans jazz, French-Creole, country, blues and more into a satisfying musical recipe. From The Grand Ole Opry to Newport Folk, from concert hall to dance floor, the music of BeauSoleil continues to captivate audiences the world over.

“That’s my kind of music!” – Bob Dylan, upon listening to BeauSoleil during the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival


“The remarkable thing about Cajun revivalists BeauSoleil is that…they are still inviting us to ask what’s new. BeauSoleil isn’t neo-anything. This ensemble finds freshness not by infusing vintage styles with contemporary sonics but with vibrant, thoughtful fusions.” – The Boston Globe


“Cajun music purists admire the fiddler Michael Doucet’s informed command of traditional Cajun music, while those who just want to party surrender to Beausoleil and boogie to classic Cajun two-steps, reels and a host of other rhythmic influences that have made this Grammy-winning Crescent City outfit one of the most colorful roots bands on the scene. Bon temps, every time they play.” – The New York Times


“The Best Cajun Band in the World!” – Garrison Keillor, Prairie Home Companion


“Beausoleil avec Michael Doucet, they play music that's honest to the bone !” – Allen Toussaint
