Michael Doucet, founder of the premier Cajun band BeauSoleil, has been in the forefront of this wonderful music for more than two decades. His fiddle playing, learned from legendary players in and around his native Lafayette, Louisiana, carries on a centuries-old tradition.
Beausoleil has received multiple Grammy nominations for a string of successful albums and has performed in movies, on network TV, and in dance and concert halls throughout the world. BeauSoleil won a Grammy in 1998 for "L'amour ou la Folie". On both record and video, Beausoleil backed up Mary-Chapin Carpenter's Grammy-winning single, "Down At The Twiste And Shout." The band continues to tour to ecstatic audiences worldwide.
