We played a great fundraiser event in Lafayette and the amazingly-talented Michael Doucet joined us for some great music making.
Proceeds of the concert benefit the Elemore Morgan Jr. Visual Arts Endowment. “Friends of Elemore” presented the Turtle Island Quartet, a two-time Grammy winning string chamber music group renowned for their exploration of jazz, classical, American vernacular and world music styles, taking their audiences on a journey through many musical vernaculars. This performance, with special guest Michael Doucet, included works by legendary guitarist, songwriter and performer Jimi Hendrix, as well as other compositions reflective of and inspired by Hendrix’s music.
“I have played my (Cajun) music quite a bit in the Bay area,” said Doucet. “I love sharing our music with people who love to dance to it.”
Doucet and the quartet then went on to perform a blues ballad called “Stolen Moments,” which was art in its purist form.
