This powerful and exciting blues guitarist is always welcome back to the mountains. He’s been playing since he was a teen in Houma, Louisiana and learned his craft from living legends playing in local clubs. Those lessons were taken to heart — his playing is expressive and nuanced, at once face melting as it is seductive. He was inducted in the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2010 and in 2007 the Blues Music Awards honored him with the B.B. King Entertainer of the Year award. In 2012 the BMA recognized him again with not only the B.B. King award, but also Best Contemporary Blues Album (for 2011’s Medicine) and Contemporary Blues Male Artist. His self-penned songs and tasteful covers will take you deep into the Louisiana night where the blues runs deep and the humidity of the South keeps things greasy. Tab founded conservation group Voice of the Wetlands, which works to raise awareness about the fragile wetlands ecosystem along the Louisiana coastline. This is one righteous human.
