BeauSoleil Submitted photo

The BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet are set to perform at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 22 at The Strad Theatre, 345 Main St. in Rockland.
The renowned Grammy-winning Cajun band brings their “One Last Time – Au Revoir!” Tour to the stage.

For the past 45 years, the group has been making potent Cajun music. Born out of the rich Acadian ancestry of its members, and created and driven by bandleader 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 2010 with Live from the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, BeauSoleil has garnered many accolades, including 12 Grammy nominations.

Tickets cost $28 in advance, or $32 day of show.
