PSIP Description: 
The well-loved, two-time Grammy award-winning Cajun/zydeco band showcases their talent.
Long Description: 
This well-loved Cajun/zydeco band is a two-time Grammy award-winner. Founded in 1975, the band is led by National Heritage Fellow Michael Doucet, an accomplished fiddler and recipient of the National Heritage Fellowship, America's top honor for traditional artists. Of BeauSoleil's energetic music, critic Richard Gehr wrote that they "possess the ability to transform nearly any traditional Cajun, Creole, or French tune into high art while preserving a clear sonic bloodline back to its roots."
