Mad Dogs & Englishmen | Lockn To Host Tribute To Joe Cocker

This year’s installment of Lockn’ will host a tribute to the late Joe Cocker dubbed “Mad Dogs & Englishmen.” The tribute will feature Tedeschi Trucks Band with special guests Leon Russell, Dave Mason, Rita Coolidge, Chris Robinson, Doyle Bramhall II and friends. More special guests are expected to be announced soon.

Russell helped Cocker spearhead the original Mad Dogs & Englishmen, a quickly formed band assembled largely by Leon that drew heavily from fellow Delaney and Bonnie alums, including Dave Mason and Rita Coolidge. Mad Dogs & Englishmen, which resulted in a tour, album and movie, is one of the highlights of Joe Cocker’s career.

The Lockn’ Festival will take place at Oak Ridge Farm in Arrington, Virginia September 10 -13. Phil Lesh & Friends, Widespread Panic, The String Cheese Incident and Umphrey’s McGee are among the acts scheduled to perform at Lockn’ ’15. Tickets for the festival are on sale now.
