Waterfowl Chesapeake Inc. is proud to present legendary Louisiana musician Tab Benoit and the Voice of the Wetlands All-Stars in concert on Tuesday, June 4, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. at the Avalon Theatre in Easton.
More than just a bluesman and roots music expert, Grammy-Award nominee Tab Benoit is an indefatigable conservation advocate. He is the driving force behind Voice of the Wetlands (VOW), an organization working to save Louisiana’s and the nation’s wetlands. To achieve this mission, Benoit has assembled a stellar ensemble of fellow New Orleans musicians to bring attention through music to the environmental challenges faced by our declining wetlands. The All-Stars band includes Grammy Award-winning Cyril Neville of the Neville Brothers, 2012 Blues Music Award Winner Johnny Sansone, premiere drummer Johnny Vidacovich, fiddler Waylon Thibodeaux, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux and bassist Corey Duplechin.
As wetlands are a critical habitat for Chesapeake Bay waterfowl, VOW and Waterfowl Chesapeake are teaming up to raise awareness and funds for habitat creation, restoration and conservation. A ticket to the show gives guests the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience these renowned musicians performing together and support the conservation mission of Waterfowl Chesapeake.
“We are thrilled to welcome the Voice of the Wetlands All-Stars to Maryland’s Eastern Shore,” comments Judy Price, Waterfowl Chesapeake executive director. “We encourage the community to join us for a world-class performance not to be missed and to learn more about the important role wetlands play within our ecosystem as habitat for waterfowl.”
Proceeds from the concert will benefit Waterfowl Chesapeake’s mission to create, restore and conserve waterfowl habitat throughout the Chesapeake Bay region. Tickets range in price from $50 – $110 per person and may be purchased by visiting www.waterfowlchesapeake.org/voiceofthewetlands or calling 410-822-4567.
