For the past 42 years, BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet has been making some of the most potent and popular Cajun music on the planet. Born out of the rich Acadian ancestry of its members and created and driven by bandleader Michael Doucet’s spellbinding fiddle playing and soulful vocals, BeauSoleil is notorious for bringing even the most staid audience to its feet. They’ve captivated listeners from New Orleans to Carnegie Hall, then all the way across the pond to Richard Thompson’s Meltdown Festival in England.
Seating for this show is general admission within three sections: Balcony for $30, Platinum Orchestra in the front center section for $25.00 and General Orchestra for $20.00. Tickets will be available starting Monday, June 12 at 10 a.m. on www.criteriontheatre.org or over the phone at 207-288-0829.
