Beausoleil on stage at SummerSounds in Greensburg, Pa

     The legendary band Beausoleil came to Greensburg, Pennsylvania Friday night bringing with them the true spirit and sound of the Louisiana low country.  Their SummerSounds performance on the Robertshaw Amphitheater in St.Clair Park conjured up the feeling of being out in the parish at a Creole festival somewhere way back in the bayou.  As the band played selections that ranged from Cajun, zydeco, jazz, bluegrass and swamp pop you could almost smell the shrimp and crawdads boiling!  Being north of the Mason-Dixon Line clearly confused fiddler/vocalist Michael Doucet when he said he was glad to be in Ohio, much to the amusement of the crowd.  He also seemed fascinated by the small “graveyard’ as he called it that is located in the park.  Beausoleil delivered a high energy show with their trademark friendly down home style that sent the crowd home with smiles on their faces and a toe tapping spring in their step.  Laizzez le bon temps rouler!!!

  1. Sorry I missed that concert. I’ve enjoyed the band’s recordings. It must have been a fine time!

  2. We have a ‘Basin Summer Sounds’ Festival the 3rd weekend in July in Ephrata, our previous town. I worked the music festival all four years we lived there – love to work with the musicians. Sounds like the band was terrific! 🙂
