Celebrate Brooklyn: Jason Isbell / Dawn Landes
Jul 24, 2015 @ 7:30 pm| Free
The Alabama native JASON ISBELL has emerged as the great hope of country music, “a composer of splendidly crafted songs” who “performs with an intensity that connects the listener to the deep and genuine emotions that inspire his work.” (Wall Street Journal) Originally a member of the influential alt-country entourage Drive-By Truckers, his solo work weaves elements of Southern rock, gospel, and American ballad into a vivid musical voice.
The bewitching Louisville-born, Brooklyn-based songwriter DAWN LANDES writes and sings “with such weightless delicacy…it’s hard not to be transported.” (Uncut) Along with a host of solo records that bring an experimental flavor to ‘60s folk, she has collaborated in-studio with the likes of Justin Townes Earle, Will Oldham, and Josh Ritter.
BRIC presents the 37th annual Celebrate Brooklyn! Performing Arts Festival, comprised of 29 performances, June 3 – August 12. The programming, reflective of Brooklyn’s eclecticism and diversity, features a wide array of free, world-class performances in the singular environs of the Prospect Park Bandshell.
