Happy Birthday to Michael Doucet! See him in concert with Beausoleil Quartet...link below in the caption! The Cajun musician, singer, bandleader, and cultural historian was born February 14, 1951. He's both a Grammy-winner and a National Heritage Fellow, one of the leading figures in American roots music. He's best known as a fiddler and leader of the band Beausoleil, but he also plays the accordion and leads the smaller Beausoleil quartet, who appeared here at the Library of Congress.
