Weekend Music Feature: Tab Benoit ‘ New Orleans Ladies’

This week we feature Tab Benoit. Described as Louisiana’s #1 musical export Benoit began his career at an early age:

A guitar player since his teenage years, he appeared at the Blues Box, a music club and cultural center in 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. He formed a trio in 1987 and began playing clubs in Baton Rouge and New Orleans. He began touring other parts of the south two years later and started touring more of the United States in 1991- and he continues to this day

For this week’s Weekend Music Feature Tab performs a cover of LeRoux’s ‘New Orleans Ladies’ recorded live at The Melting Pot in Athens , Georgia in Feb. 2010.Ā  We hope you enjoy!
