Episode 116: Fiddler, songwriter, singer, bandleader and folk music scholar Michael Doucet is synonymous with Beausoleil the neo-traditional Louisiana band he co-founded 40+ years ago. But this artist relishes collaborations and his upcoming album with a new band, L'acher Prise on Compass Records, is a real Americana hybrid. It's Cajun at its core, but full of ideas from four other musicians a generation younger than he is. We talk about one of the legendary careers in roots music, dedicated to rediscovery and reclaiming of a marginalized culture that made Louisiana the special place that it is. Also, the legacy and music of Warren Storm, with musician, author and record producer Yvette Landry.
