Internationally acclaimed Cajun artists BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet will perform Saturday, Feb. 9 at 7:30 pm. at Hooligans Neighborhood Pub, 1400 East Madison Ave., Mankato. The event is co-sponsored by KMSU-The Maverick and the Minnesota State Mankato Performance Series with assistance from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. The formation of BeauSoleil, one of the best known and most highly respected Cajun bands in the world, is due to fiddler Michael Doucet's desire to keep the unique Southern Louisiana culture and music from extinction. But while BeauSoleil originated to help preserve his Cajun musical heritage, over the years it has also been known for its innovation. They are continually adding spice from other musical genres including jazz and Caribbean. In this way, BeauSoleil keeps the music vital and contemporary. Concert admission is $25 in advance. Advance sales end on Tuesday, February 5 at 12:00 noon. Tickets are $30 after this time and date. Advance purchase is strongly encouraged. Those who wish to purchase tickets online should go to www.mnsu.edu/music. For more information, contact (507) 389-5549.
