With all the makings of an American music icon, Tab Benoit has become one of the premiere roots stylists of the century. Tab has paid his dues as a road troubadour playing 250 nights a year performing at venues across North America, honing his guitar chops and becoming part of Louisiana folklore.
Tab Benoit is a Cajun, born in Houma, Louisiana. A guitar player since his teenage years, he hung out at the Blues Box, a ramshackle music club and cultural center in nearby Baton Rouge run by guitarist Tabby Thomas. Playing guitar alongside Thomas, Raful Neal, Henry Gray and other high-profile regulars at the club, Benoit learned the blues first-hand from a faculty of living blues legends.
A popular favorite of JazzFest, Benoit’s skills as a guitarist, vocalist, composer, and arranger have skyrocketed quickly throughout his colorful career. Three-time Grammy nominated, four-time Blues Music Awards “Entertainer of The Year” and five-time “Contemporary Male Blues Music” award winner, Tab Benoit has risen to the top of blues artists in both public opinion and in critical acclaim.
