BeauSoleil and The Subdudes Bring the "Soul of the Bayou" to the MainStage

BURLINGTON Touring together for the first time, two of Louisiana's finest and most critically acclaimed acts, BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet and The Subdudes, bring their spicy Cajun flavor to Burlington in a special American Routes Series "Soul of the Bayou" DoubleBill on the MainStage on Saturday, February 9 at 8 pm. Since forming in 1975, Grammy winners BeauSoleil have claimed their undisputed role as the most esteemed Cajun group in music, taking the rich Cajun traditions of Louisiana and artfully blending elements of zydeco, New Orleans jazz, Tex-Mex, country, blues, and more into a satisfying musical recipe. From the Grand Ole Opry to the Newport Folk Festival, and from concert hall to dance floor, the music of BeauSoleil continues to captivate audiences the world over. In 1987, four musicians got together for what they envisioned would be a one-time performance at Tipitina's in New Orleans. Now, following a hiatus and reunion, The Subdudes are back in a big way. Their incredible comeback cd, Behind The Levee (Back Porch/EMI) spent most of 2006 in the Top 10 (Adult Alternative and Americana). Produced by bluesman Keb' Mo', the album showcases the band's amazing vocals and truly unique melding of gospel, soul, funk, and folk that makes The Subdudes a one-of-a-kind American original. The Flynn Center's American Routes Series is sponsored by Ben and Jerry's. This performance is sponsored by Technology Park and Karen Dean, with media support from The Point, WNCS 104.7. Tickets for this performance are $44, $37, and $27, and are available in person at the FlynnTix Regional Box Office window at 153 Main Street, Burlington or by calling 802-86-FLYNN.
