ABOUT US

Sweet Cecilia is an all female family trio from Cecilia, LA.  Their music is deeply rooted in country, rock, folk, and Cajun influences.  Their three part harmony is rich and sultry.  These three women are not only accomplished vocalists, but musicians and master songwriters.  Their original songs will invoke tears, laughter, and joy.  Sweet Cecilia was formally created in 2012. However , sisters Laura Huval and Maegan Berard, along with their first cousin, Callie Guidry, have been singing and making music together since childhood. It all started with their late father and uncle, Al Berard (Grammy nominated musician) , encouraging them at a young age to pursue music.   They keep the music fresh and modern, while holding on to their musical roots and traditions.
