About JP Beausoleil

Embarrass, MN

JP Beausoleil, the “Bohemian Songster”, plays a wide variety of traditionall
based music that includes, but is not limited to: Delta, Piedmont, and countr
blues, mountain music, acapella work songs and ballads, early jazz and swing
as well as a handful of original music. Accompanying himself on banjo, acoustic
and steel guitars, Beausoleil’s music stems from years of “easy living and har
traveling” as he puts it. JP’s music defies ones typical expectations of a sol
acoustic act. Beausoleil takes this music and redefines it by swallowing it whol
and infusing his soul into it, which ensures his audience is emotionall
captivated and leaves fully satisfied

A self-taught musician, Beausoleil grew up in a household that praise
traditional acoustic music, and, his style bears the influence of years spen
listening to the old time music. His influences also include Doc Watson, Loui
Jordan, Leadbelly, Mississippi John Hurt, Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan, Han
Williams, and the New Lost City Ramblers to name a few. JP has performe
publicly since 1996 either solo or with a variety of like-minded musicians
including the jug band The Wild Whiskey Boys. After relocating to Arizona i
1999, Beausoleil held multiple regular shows in Flagstaff, AZ and the norther
Arizona region, including weekly shows at Mogollon Brewery, Bigfoot BBQ, an
Uptown Billiards as well as performing annually at a variety of folk festival
around the Southwest. JP has opened and shared the stage with some of th
Southwest’s finest musicians. Beausoleil recently finished his "Duck Out O
Water" tour which took him from his AZ home, through the southwest, into th
Deep South, up the East Coast, through New England, and back through th
mid-west. JP now resides in his native Rhode Island

JP Beausoleil has a mission in his music. In his own words: “I am looking to brin
people the same joy and emotions I get from playing music; I want them to fee
deep down in their souls what I sing and why I sing it. I want them to forget thei
troubles for a while and leave the show knowing everything is going to be al
right. Music has this ability, and I intend to show them this.”
