More About This show

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dr. John carries New Orleans with him wherever he goes. He has inspired bands from the Rolling Stones to the Black Keys. He has written songs with Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton, and played with Aretha Franklin and The Beach Boys. For one night only, he's bringing his funky beats, charismatic storytelling, and voodoo magic to West Virginia's famous Shepherdstown Opera House. Join us as we celebrate the Night Tripper, and rock out to a tasty gumbo of blues, jazz, R&B, and zydeco each time he takes the stage.
