Watch John Fogerty + His Kids, the ‘Fogerty Factory,’ Play ‘Centerfield’ and Some CCR Classics for NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

John Fogerty and his kids, a.k.a. the Fogerty Factory, took part in NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert, the new series of at-home performances that sprang up out of the coronavirus pandemic, with a short performance showing up online on Friday.

Under normal, non-COVID-19 circumstances, we’d nearly be finished with the first full month of the Major League Baseball season. There are no games yet in 2020, of course, due to the pandemic — but it feels somewhat comforting anyway to watch Fogerty play that oh-so-familiar guitar lead in “Centerfield,” which begins the Tiny Desk (Home) Concert:

In addition to that song, John Fogerty and his kids — Shane, Kelsy and Tyler — play “Down on the Corner,” “Long As I Can See the Light” and “Proud Mary.”

The ‘Fogerty Factory’ began jamming at home in recent weeks, treating the masses to various Creedence Clearwater Revival classics from their studio:

In addition to all this musical fun, Fogerty also took the time to commemorate the 50th anniversary of CCR’s 1970 album Cosmo’s Factory:

50 years later… “FOGERTY’S FACTORY!” During this pandemic we re-created the iconic album cover of Cosmo’s Factory by collecting items around the house, including the Kustom Amp that was played at Woodstock – complete with Bob Fogerty shooting this cover as well as the original! Stay tuned for more performances from the factory!
