Video 6/27/2017: Homegrown: BeauSoleil Quartet

For four decades, the BeauSoleil Quartet have taken traditional ingredients—waltzes, two-steps, soulful Cajun French lyrics, hot fiddle licks, and irresistible accordion—and spiced them up with eclectic percussion, acoustic guitar in both finger- picked and flat-picked styles, and an open and creative attitude toward the music. The BeauSoleil Quartet's particular flavor of Cajun music reflects the vision of bandleader Michael Doucet, a lifelong student of Cajun culture.

Presented in collaboration with Smithsonian Folklife Festival and the Library of Congress.
