Beausoleil Avec Michael Doucet (Episode #308H)

KQED Life: Sun, Dec 29, 2013 -- 9:30 PM

This well-loved Cajun/zydeco band is a two-time Grammy award-winner. Founded in 1975, the band is led by National Heritage Fellow Michael Doucet, an accomplished fiddler and recipient of the National Heritage Fellowship, America's top honor for traditional artists. Of BeauSoleil's energetic music, critic Richard Gehr wrote that they "possess the ability to transform nearly any traditional Cajun, Creole, or French tune into high art while preserving a clear sonic bloodline back to its roots."

Andrew Bird (Episode #302H)

KQED Plus: Wed, Dec 11, 2013 -- 11:30 PM

Singer/violinist, multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird has brightened the national alternative scene for more than 15 years, first making a name with his band Bowl of Fire. Bird last year released the acclaimed Break It Yourself and has earned notice on the film festival circuit for the concert documentary Andrew Bird: Fever Year. With indie-folk rock, whistling and cameo performances by Tift Merritt, this is a most unpredictable show (in the best way, of course).
