About David Doucet
The brother of Michael Doucet, leader of the influential Cajun band Beausoleil, David Doucet is an expert acoustic guitarist. He has adapted Cajun songs to guitar in much the same way his hero Clarence White adapted Appalachian and Bluegrass fiddle songs. His playing is crisp and precise, combining some flashy Bluegrass picking with a more slurred and lyrical Cajun feel. Along with playing in Beausoleil with his brother, he has recorded a number of records as a leader and a sideman.
