Tab Benoit/Sol Driven Train

When: Thu., Dec. 12, 8 p.m. 2013

Louisiana-born blues guitarist Tab Benoit started up “Voice of the Wetlands," a charity focusing on coastal preservation, back in 2003. Thing is, that moniker is also apropos for Benoit. With the grit of the delta blues in his guitar work and the thick atmosphere of his vocals, Benoit’s commitment to the South’s fine legacy of all things Cajun is quite strong. And it’s all very exciting to listen to on the muggy days of summer. Of course, all we’ve got up here in Cleveland are bitter winters, so Benoit’s blues will have to contend with that tonight. Shouldn’t be a problem. Pick up a copy of 1992’s Nice and Warm or 2011’s Medicine for perspectives on his early and late career points, respectively. (Eric Sandy)
