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, 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.
A twelve-time GRAMMY award nominee, and two-time GRAMMY award winner (1998 & 2010), BeauSoleil was the first Cajun band to win the esteemed award. Recognizing Michael Doucet for his involvement with the Cajun world, The National Endowment for the Arts awarded him with National Heritage Fellowship in 2005 as well as the United States Artist Fellowship in 2007.
