Tab Benoit's Swampland Jam

Ruth Eckerd Hall on the Road presents Tab Benoit’s Swampland Jam and The Samantha Fish Band at the Tampa Theatre. Tab Benoit is one of music’s most enduring and masterful blues and roots performers, and an authority on Louisiana music and culture, leads an all-star band featuring three giants of Louisiana Roots Music - Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, Johnny Sansone and Waylon Thibodeaux. The GRAMMY®-nominated singer, songwriter and guitarist who has built a remarkable 30+ 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.

Anyone who has ever heard Samantha Fish’s previous albums knows that she has earned a place in the top rank of contemporary blues guitarists and that her voice can wring the soul out of a ballad and belt out a rocker with roof-shaking force. Over the course of her career as an award-winning artist, singer/songwriter and guitarist, Fish has brought extraordinary power to her self-expression, capturing her inner world in combustible riffs, visceral rhythms and spine-tingling vocal work.

This performance is at the Tampa Theatre, 711 N Franklin St, Tampa, FL 33602.
