New York will get a taste of Americana once again this year when the AmericanaFest NYC festival takes place Aug. 7-9. Part of the Lincoln Center’s Out of Doors series, the event is presented by the Americana Music Association and will feature three days of performances capped off by a concert by Lyle Lovett and his Large Band.
The Fairfield Four and The McCrary Sisters bring their soulful sounds to the Lincoln Center’s Damrosch Park Bandshell stage Aug. 7 along with Junior Mambazo, and the Saturday two-stage lineup will include performances by Sam Outlaw, the Quebe Sisters, Kasey Chambers, Justin Townes Earle, the Watkins Family Hour, Fiona Apple, Don Heffington, and Sebastian Steinburg. An eclectic tribute to Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited album is also planned, featuring Aimee Mann, Ted Leo, Shawn Colvin, Rodney Crowell, and Pokey LaFarge, with the Watkins Family Hour backing as the house band.
Sunday will include a special late afternoon show by Iris DeMent, followed by closer Lyle Lovett, who will round out the weekend’s performances.
All shows are free and require no tickets, and a full calendar of events can be found at www.americanamusic.org.
