Joining Benoit on Tour For Selected Dates in April, May, June
Tab Benoit headlines the Blues Event of Summer 2021 when the renowned Blues guitarist-vocalist presents “The Chicago Takeover,” bringing his celebrated Whiskey Bayou Revue to world-famous City Winery located in the heartbeat of the Blues, Chicago, for six big evenings –
Tuesday, June 1, Friday, June 4, Saturday, June 5, Sunday, June 6, Monday, June 7, and Tuesday, June 8.
Showtime: 8pm. Tickets: $42.-$55. 1200 W. Randolph St. Info: (312) 733-9463 or visit https://citywinery.com/chicago.
Opening all six City Winery shows for Benoit is exciting new Whiskey Bayou Records recording artist Alastair Greene, whose debut disc on Whiskey Bayou Records, The New World Blues, was released to critical acclaim.
Benoit recently co-headlined six high-profile shows with another blues guitarist at the top of her game, Samantha Fish. Benoit and Fish also teamed last November at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium for a concert live streamed worldwide. “This is an artist whose playing speaks to you as much as his lyrics do,” wrote Music Connection magazine, reviewing Benoit’s Ryman show set. “What Tab lacked in theatrics he made up for with a warm and disarming stage presence and heartfelt playing.”
The Grammy-nominated Benoit was selected a “30 Best Blues Guitarist In The World Today” by Guitar World in 2020 and also co-authored recently-released book, Blues Therapy, about the blues and mental illness.
Benoit, who throughout his thirty-plus career has always been known for his environmental activism, performed two nights in his hometown of Houma at the memorable 16th Annual Voice of the Wetlands Festival. He also appears prominently in the IMax motion picture Hurricane on the Bayou, a documentary of Hurricane Katrina’s effects and a call to protect and restore the Wetlands, and produced a CD to help restore that state’s Coastal Wetlands. Benoit was inducted into the Louisiana Folklife Center Hall of Master Folk Artists in the Spring of 2020.
Whiskey Bayou Records is a partnership between Benoit and his partner and manager, Rueben Williams. The label has thus far released albums by such established and up-and-coming artists as Eric McFadden, JP Soars, Alastair Greene, Damon Fowler, Eric Johanson, Jeff McCarty, and Dash Rip Rock.
