Event has passed

    ROCKLAND — BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet will appear at the Strand Theatre on Thursday, Sept. 22, at 7:30 p.m., as part of their “One Last Time – Au Revoir!” tour. Tickets are on sale now.

    “For the past 45 years, BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet has been making some of the most popular Cajun music on the planet,” said Strand, in a news release. “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. BeauSoleil’s distinctive sound derives from the distilled spirits of New Orleans jazz, blues rock, folk, swamp pop, Zydeco, country and bluegrass, captivating listeners from the Jazz and Heritage Festival in New Orleans, to Carnegie Hall, then all the way across the pond to Richard Thompson’s Meltdown Festival in England.”

    Since becoming the first Cajun band to win a Grammy with Lamour Ou La Folie and then a second in 2010 with Live from the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, BeauSoleil has garnered many accolades, including twelve Grammy nominations.

    Tickets $28/Advance, $32/Day of Show. To buy tickets, or for more information, visit www.rocklandstrand.com or call (207) 594-0070.
