An album release concert will be held for local performer James Linden Hogg at the Manship Theatre on Thursday, Feb. 14, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

During the show, Hogg will perform songs from his latest album, “College Fund Vol. 3.” It’ll be the third performance at the Baton Rouge venue for 18-year-old Hogg, a homeschooled high school senior from Livingston Parish.

“College Fund Vol. 3” marks Hogg’s third album release, following “College Fund Vol. 1” in 2016 and “College Fund Vol. 2” the following year. Hogg’s music style is a blend of folk, americana, celtic, and spiritual.

Reserved seating tickets for Hogg’s show Feb. 14 are $25 (plus tax) and can be purchased by visiting the following link:

Hogg, a multi-instrumentalist who writes much of his own music, recently performed the national anthem during the American Farm Bureau National Convention, held Jan. 11-13 in New Orleans. Playing a keyboard alone on stage, Hogg sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” in front of thousands of people — including President Donald Trump.
