Enjoy the rootsy, bluesy jams of Tedeschi Trucks at The Cabot

Mavis Staples will open for the award-winning couple at the intimate Beverly theater on April 14.

Beverly’s Cabot Theatre started teasing a major show announcement late last week. On their Facebook page, a post asked, “Can you guess who’s performing on our stage?”

Of the many dozen people who speculated — seriously, jokingly, and even in poor taste (i.e., the recently deceased Meat Loaf) — in response, two managed to correctly guess Tedeschi Trucks Band. However, this performance will not be by the 12-piece combo that usually tours under that name, but by a pared down version called Tedeschi Trucks Fireside Live.

The last names belong to the married couple of Susan Tedeschi — Boston native, great-granddaughter of food shop founder, and former solo artist — and Derek Trucks — founder of The Derek Trucks Band, former member of The Allman Brothers Band, and nephew of that group’s late percussionist Butch Trucks.

Together, they have released four studio albums and three live albums. Among the latter is 2021’s “Layla Revisited,” a beginning-to-end recreation of the 1970 album “Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs” by the band that is Trucks’s namesake, Derek and the Dominos.

Since forming in 2010, Tedeschi and Trucks have been honored with a Best Blues Album Grammy Award for their 2011 debut album, “Revelator,” and four Blues Music Awards: two for Band of the Year and two for Rock Blues Album of the Year (2013’s “Made Up My Mind” and 2016’s “Let Me Get By”).

The Cabot is hardly a hole-in-the-wall and Beverly is hardly a sleepy small town in the middle of nowhere. However, Tedeschi Trucks played four nights at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre as recently the first week of December.

Therefore, the 850-seat venue is perfectly justified in designating this show “The Cabot’s Big Night.”

Oh yeah, the iconic Mavis Staples — who headlined a show of her own at The Cabot in 2017 — will open the show, making this a borderline co-headlining bill.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, Jan. 28, although Cabot Club members get first dibs on Wednesday.
