BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet At the Clark

12:00AM / Monday, March 05, 2007

BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet will be at the Clark Art Institute on March 24.
Williamstown- They have been called "The World's Greatest Cajun Band" by Garrison Keillor of Prairie Home Companion.

Decide for yourself when BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet artfully blend elements of zydeco, New Orleans jazz, Tex-Mex, country, blues and more at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute on Sat., March 24.

The concert will held at 8 p.m. in the auditorium; tickets are $24 ($20 for members) and may be reserved by calling 413-458-0524 or purchased at the museum shop.

The formation of BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet, one of the best known and most highly respected Cajun bands in the world, is due to fiddler Michael Doucet's desire to keep the unique southern Louisiana culture and music from extinction.

While BeauSoleil originated to help preserve this Cajun musical heritage, over the years it has been also known for its innovation. They are continually adding spice from other musical genres including jazz and Caribbean.

BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet have played at jazz and folk festivals around the world and have appeared on numerous television shows ranging from CNN's Showbiz Today to Austin City Limits to Late Night with Conan O'Brien.

They are regular performers on public radio including Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion, and have performed with Mary Chapin Carpenter and opened for the Grateful Dead. BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet have garnered several Grammy nominations and in 1997 won a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Folk Album.

The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, MA. The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm (daily in July and August). Admission is free November through May. Admission June 1 through October 31 is $12.50 for adults, free for children 18 and under, members, and students with valid ID. For more information, call 413-458-2303 or visit www.clarkart.edu.
