A CAJUN CHRISTMAS

I know I've been lax of late in writing posts for my blog and today will be no exception.  Of course if I have Judy and Loretta to write posts, who needs me?  Anyway, we're off to the Musical Instrument Museum again tonight for a concert by the Louisiana band BeauSoleil with Michael Doucet.  (Actually they say "avec" Michael Doucet but I didn't know how good y'all's French was.)  I've been a fan of this group for years so I'm very much looking forward to the concert which is billed as "A Cajun Christmas."  I'll probably have a review on Saturday but in the meantime here's a sample of their music to tide you over.

  1. I like it I like it! Addictive bluesy rhythm and he has a great face too. Thanks for this sample.

  3. Very easy listening. I'm not familiar with this music but it has a definite appeal.

    1. That one was slow but they play rollicking high-speed Cajun music too.

  4. Great stuff. Looking forward to your thoughts about the show.
    BTW are you watching Treme on HBO?

    1. No, we don't take HBO. We get Treme a year late from Netflix. Just got the last disk with the final two episodes of the second season. But Gayle watches it on HBO and says she thought BeauSoleil was on one of the recent shows.
