Tab Benoit + Anthony Rosano and the Conqueroos



BOMBYX Center for Arts & Equity (130 Pine Street, Florence MA)

Tab Benoit has built a remarkable 30+ year career with a devoted legion of fans on the foundation of his gritty and soulful Delta swamp blues. He’s twice won the BB King Entertainer of the Year award and is a member of The Louisiana Music Hall of Fame. The singer, songwriter and guitarist has collaborated with Junior Wells, Dr. John, Willie Nelson, Maria Muldaur, James Cotton, Allen Toussaint, Charlie Musslewhite, and several Neville Brothers to name a handful. Tab's accomplishments as a musician are matched only by his devotion to the environmental health of his native Louisiana wetlands. Benoit is the founder and driving force behind Voice of the Wetlands, an organization working to preserve the coastal waters of his home state. In 2010, he received the Governor's Award for Conservationist of the Year from the Louisiana Wildlife Federation. Benoit also starred 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.
