Tab Benoit

Description

Tab Benoit
 

One of the most impressive guitarists to emerge from the rich bayous of southern Louisiana in recent years, Tab Benoit’s guitar tone can be recognized before his Otis-Redding-style voice resonates from the speakers. He doesn’t rely on any effects, and his setup is simple: guitar, cord, and Category 5 Amplifier. The effects you hear come from his fingers.

He has recorded and performed with Junior Wells, George Porter Jr, Dr. John, Willie Nelson, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, Billy Joe Shaver, Maria Muldaur, James Cotton, Cyril Neville, and Kenny Aronoff, to name a few. Tab's accomplishments as a musician are matched only by his devotion to the environmental health of the wetlands of his native Louisiana.

In 2010, he received the Governor's Award for Conservationist of the Year from the Louisiana Wildlife Federation.
