Since forming in 1975, Grammy winners BeauSoleil have claimed their undisputed role as the most esteemed Cajun group in music. Michael Doucet avec BeauSoleil take the rich Cajun traditions of Louisiana and artfully blend elements of zydeco, New Orleans jazz, Tex-Mex, 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.
BeauSoleil's latest recording, Live in Louisiana, their first on the Way Down in Louisiana imprint, was released to coincide with the April 2006 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. It's their first live album recorded at home, their 28th overall, and it celebrates their 30th anniversary with a wide-ranging set of tunes from across their discography and the Cajun and Creole cultural spectrum.
