David Doucet, guitarist for the popular Cajun band BeauSoleil, has defined a musical territory all his own on this exquisite album of traditional Cajun songs. While the guitar has long been a featured rhythm instrument in Cajun music, David has reinvented the guitar as a compelling solo voice, employing the fingerpicking style identified with folk and blues players such as Doc Watson, John Hurt and John Fahey. The result is Cajun music with an intricacy and subtle beauty that casts traditional songs such as the Balfa Brothers' 'My True Love' or Dennis McGee's 'Cowboy Waltz' in a stunning new light.
