Lucinda Williams ends the first day of the Jazz Festival with Late-Night Ft. Tommy McLain and CC Adcock
Lucinda Williams took the stage at Blue New Orleans House Friday night for a jazz festival late night performance with swamp pop musician Tommy McLain and zydeco-influenced blues guitarist and singer-songwriter CC Adcock.
After a long first day of Jazz Fest which included performances by Lionel Richie, Death Taxi for Cutiea tribute to James Brown with CeeLo Green, and more, fans headed to House of Blues for a slight change of pace. As Jazz Fest sets wrapped up for the day at 7:00 p.m., crowds arrived for the not-so-late late-night show as the sun was still setting over Crescent City. The 800-seat club was intimate compared to the crowded festival grounds, which hosted tens of thousands of music lovers earlier in the day.
Tommy McLain and CC Adcock gave the show a local flavor, opening the night with two swampy sets before Lucinda Williams, herself a native of Louisiana, took the stage, her messy hair illuminated by the lighting of the stage. The folk-country rocker has released her latest album, good souls best angelsin 2020 and will join country star Bonnie Raitt on tour as support from late May.
Lucinda Williams, Tommy McLain and CC Adcock will perform again at House of Blues New Orleans tonight, Saturday, April 30 at 8:00 p.m. CT. Click here for tickets and to see photos from Friday’s performance, courtesy of Ron Vallebelow.
