Music Around Town, Seasonal Special Happenings

Tab Benoit/Austin Walkin' Cane

When: Thu., Aug. 7, 8 p.m. 2014

Longtime blues guitarist Tab Benoit has a towering catalog of soul-ripping musicianship. From the neck of his Tele Thinline, Benoit drips pure Louisiana blues. He most recently dropped a greatest hits album, but to really get the bayou bliss from this guy, you should turn your attention toward 1994’s What I Live For or 2002’s Wetlands, each of which sum up Benoit’s Cajun vibe quite adroitly. Via tunes like “Blues Come Walking In” and “Time and Time Again,” he shows off his effortless approach to intense guitar work and inventive vocal acrobatics. More to the point, check out his take on “Hot Tamale Baby” from his Feb. 13, 2013, show, which is available on Youtube. Sick stuff. Of course, you could also just stroll on down to the Beachland Ballroom tonight, where he and Walkin’ Cane will delight the Cleveland masses with edgy Delta blues. (Sandy)
