BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet “One of the most colorful roots bands on the scene. Bon temps, every time they play.”—The New York Times
Marcia Ball "A sensational, saucy singer and superb pianist . . . where Texas stomp-rock and Louisiana blues-swamp meet."—USA Today
BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet and Marcia Ball present a heart-racing musical tour of the American South and Gulf Coast. With a celebrated 35-year career, BeauSoleil has been taking the rich Cajun traditions of Louisiana and artfully blending elements of Zydeco, New Orleans jazz, Tex-Mex, country, blues and more. Singer/pianist Marcia Ball knows how to raise roofs and tear down walls with her infectious, intelligent and deeply emotional brand of southern boogie, rollicking roadhouse blues and heartfelt ballads. Her exquisite piano playing and passionate, playful vocals fuse New Orleans and Gulf Coast R&B with Austin's deep songwriting tradition.
