Enjoy Valentine’s Weekend at The Dixie 

Join The Dixie for a Valentine’s weekend exclusive with Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter/guitarist Tab Benoit as he debuts his talent on the Hal Holbrook stage Saturday, Feb. 12 at 7:30 p.m, following Huntingdon’s Downtown Nights event in downtown Huntingdon.

Benoit has built a remarkable 30-plus year career on the foundation of his gritty and soulful Delta swamp blues, acquiring a devoted legion of fans along the way, as well as five Blues Music Awards, including BB King Entertainer of the Year (twice) and an induction into The Louisiana Music Hall of Fame. He has recorded and performed with acts including Junior Wells, George Porter Jr, Dr. John, Willie Nelson, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, Billy Joe Shaver, Maria Muldaur, James Cotton, Cyril Neville, Kenny Aronoff, Allen Toussaint, Kim Wilson, Jimmy Thackery, Charlie Musslewhite, Kenny Neal, Chris Layton, Ivan Neville, Jimmy Hall, Jim Lauderdale, Anders Osborne, and Alvin Youngblood Hart to name a few.

Benoit’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.

This show is supported by presenting sponsor FirstBank, show sponsor Gränges, and media sponsors 92.3 The Hog + JJ 97.7 . Tickets are on sale for $33, $38, $43, and $48 and are available in-person The Dixie Box Office or by calling 731-986-2100, Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are also available online at DixiePAC.net.
