Tab Benoit is Louisiana’s number one roots blues export—a Cajun man with the blues. He is 100% pure musical snake oil, a melodic potion that has been energizing and electrifying audiences everywhere. Benoit’s medicine is a guaranteed cure for whatever ails you.
Benoit has been named a four times Blues Music Awards “Entertainer of the Year”; three times Grammy™ nominated; B.B. King Entertainer of the Year and five times Contemporary Male Blues Music Award winner.
But Benoit is more than just an acclaimed bluesman; he is an indefatigable conservation advocate. He is a driving force behind Voice of the Wetlands, an organization working to save Louisiana’s wetlands. Benoit has made the preservation of the endangered delta wetlands his personal crusade and serves as president of the environmental organization he co-founded in 2003.
Benoit’s blazing guitar will shake the Mammoth High Sierra on Saturday. We are proud to have this legendary bluesman part of this year’s Bluesapalooza!
