Renowned blues guitarist Tab Benoit to perform at Admiral Theatre

Showtime starts at 7:30 p.m., tickets range from $18-$43

Louisiana-based blues and jazz guitarist Tab Benoit will be performing at the Admiral Theatre in Bremerton Thursday, Sept. 19.

Benoit is currently on his year-long Whiskey Bayou Revue Tour, with Admiral theatre being one of his stops along the way. Showtime is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. with tickets ranging from $18 to $43.

The renowned guitarist is currently nominated by Guitar World Magazine in the Best Blues Guitarist category. He was also recently inducted into the Louisiana Folklife Center Hall of Master Folk Artists.

Benoit grew up in the oil and fishing town of Houma, Louisiana, where he still resides today. In 1987, he formed a trio and began playing clubs in Baton Rouge and New Orleans. In 1992, he released his first recording Nice and Warm on the Justice Label.

He soon began playing 250 shows a year, a schedule he has kept up for over 20 years, according to a press release. Benoit recorded four albums for Justice Records, and in 2002, he signed with Telarc International/Concord Music Group. He wanted to use his music to bring attention to Louisiana’s coastal erosion issues and began to spend more time in the wetlands to write songs.

In 2004, Benoit founded the Voice of the Wetlands nonprofit organization in efforts to use his music and gather other musicians to use their platforms to get the message out. Most recently, he launched his own imprint, Whiskey Bayou Records, with partner and manager Rueben Williams.
