Marc Cohn first rose to fame in 1991 when he won the Best New Artist Grammy Award for his self-titled debut album. That album included the hit song “Walking in Memphis,” which peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. His debut album was certified platinum and spawned other popular singles including “True Companion,” “Silver Thunderbird,” and “29 Ways.” Cohn’s next two albums, 1992’s “Rainy Season” and 1998’s “Burning the Daze” were both critical successes.
In 2007, he released his fourth studio album “Join the Parade” that included the single “Listening to Levon.” The album was inspired by the destruction of New Orleans and a failed carjacking in 2005 that saw Cohn shot in the head. His most recent album, 2010’s “Listening Booth: 1970” featuring covers of songs from that iconic year is music. In December of 2014, he released the song “The Coldest Corner in the World” which he wrote for the feature documentary film Tree Man.
Cohn’s concert is the second to be held in the newly refurbished Lucy Lockett Cabe Festival Theatre. It will feature a pop-up shop from Cocoa Rouge, featuring hand-made artisanal chocolates from chocolatier Ashton Woodward. Cocoa Rouge.pxm
