Warren Storm with Yvette Landry, Sonny Landreth, Eric Adcock at 2019 Blackpot
Note: Swamp pop legend Warren Storm (Warren Schexnider) passed away Sept. 7, 2021, at the age of 84. The photos in this set are the last ones I took of him. In addition to photos of him performing with Yvette Landry and with his band Cypress found in a Flickr collection titled "Warren Storm," other photos are included in photo sets of Lil' Band o' Gold. Here's a link to a story on his passing in The Advocate: www.theadvocate.com/acadiana/news/article_c95d1d6a-10da-1....

Warren Storm at age 82 during the 2019 Blackpot Festival showed he can still deliver a strong crowd-winning performance. Top musicians joining him on the Vermilionville Performance Center stage Oct. 26, 2019, for a memorable hour of swamp pop favorites included Yvette Landry, Sonny Landreth, and Eric Adcock. Yvette Landry opened the show with several numbers. When Warren Storm began his set, more stage lighting was added, so the photographs from that point on have a different look.

Yvette Landry and Warren Storm have teamed up to produce a new book, “Taking the World by Storm: A Conversation with Warren ‘Storm’ Schexnider, The Godfather of Swamp Pop,” published by the University of Louisiana Press, and a CD, “Taking the World by Storm: A Regional Roots Journey with ‘The Godfather of Swamp Pop,” featuring guests John Fogerty, Sonny Landreth, Marc Broussard and more.
