Tommy McLain & CC Adcock
"Their Swamp Pop Songbook"

SOLD OUT - See you in the fall!

Following a year that has seen him release his first album in over 40 years; earn features from The New York TimesRolling StoneNPR and more; tour with Nick Lowe and share the New Orleans Jazzfest stage with Elvis Costello; bring swamp pop to the world via a performance on The Late Late Show with James CordenTommy McLain is just getting started.

At age 83, Tommy McLain is perhaps the last great artist from rock ‘n’ roll’s pioneering first generation awaiting rediscovery. The signature swamp pop sound that he helped create spawned multiple national hits in the 1960s and inspired artists like Creedence Clearwater Revival, Little Feat, and Tony Joe White, among others. His best known songs - “Sweet Dreams,” “Before I Grow Too Old” and “Try To Find Another Man” - are to this day considered cornerstones of the genre. He’s been inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame (twice!), earned a gold record for writing “If You Don't Love Me (Why Don't You Just Leave Me Alone)” for Freddy Fender, and even appeared - as himself - in the 1975 Paul Newman thriller The Drowning Pool.

Doors open at 6pm; show starts at 7pm
