Prospect Park Bandshell (Prospect Park West & 9th St)
($3 suggested donation)
Opening performance by soul singer Jason Walker. This powerhouse local singer opens the show with a sublime gospel infused set. His career that has taken him through the worlds of rock, gospel, classical, jazz, sacred music and opera.
Lucinda Williams. maneuvering down a path all her own for more than three decades is a true legend. Last year’s Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone, which Pitchfork called “a career highlight,” only reaffirmed that Williams is one of America’s greatest storytellers—an articulate and rough singer-songwriter of fierce honesty and conviction. At the Bandshell, she’ll play a set that careens from stripped down acoustic ballads to rambling electrified country-blues stomps.
