This spring Michael Doucet, will be touring in an intimate trio setting with his latest musical collaborator Sarah Quintana.
BeauSoleil’s iconic founder, Michael Doucet; the multi-Grammy winner and National Heritage Fellowship recipient, will release his first solo album in 10 years this fall on Compass Records. Entitled “Lacher Prise” (Let it Go), the album departs from the established sound of BeauSoleil (currently celebrating their 44th year together) with a more energized exploration of the regional music of his home state of Louisiana.
Doucet describes the album’s music as “Les îles Français Zarico”, a description that takes into account an eclectic mix of styles including New Orleans rhythm & blues and Southwest Louisiana rock ‘n roll, as well as his own interpretations of zydeco and Cajun, infused with the intoxicating rhythms of the French Caribbean.
