Antsy McClain is one of those rare performers who can have you laughing hysterically and shedding a tear – often within the same song. Antsy creates an unforgettable night of music, theater and storytelling. He's been called him “a national treasure” (Modesto Bee), and “a creative force whose roots lie in songwriters like John Prine, Kris Kristofferson and Guy Clark” (Houston Chronicle), and “a happier, funnier Bob Dylan.” (his Uncle Fred). Whoever you think his influences might be, you will likely think of him as a friend after attending one of his concerts, due to his casual, approachable presentation and the relatable nature of his songs.
