Arriving February 14th, is the new solo album from Grammy-award winner and BeauSoleil leader, Michael Doucet. His new album titled "Lacher Prise" is also the name of his backing band on this release, which features ten country-flavored, rockabilly tracks.
He begins with the swinging, uptempo, sing-along chorus of "Water, Water," followed by the swampy, rockabilly swagger of "Lula Lula Don't You Go To Bingo." He slows down for the dark, marching rhythm of "Walking On A Mardi Gras Day," while "Abandonne" is a graceful ballad that could have been recorded in either the France Riviera or Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Michael Doucet and his band close out "Lacher Prise" with the classic country stomp of "Marie Catin" and the instrumental storied spirit of the "Cajun Gypsy."
