Roots of American Music: Americanafest NYC
Saturday, August 12
2:00 pm–9:00 pm
Lincoln Center

The long-running Roots of American Music Weekend returns to close the 2017 edition of Lincoln Center Out of Doors. In the afternoon, singer-songwriter Amanda Shires plays a solo set of fiddle-driven folk, accordionist and conjunto pioneer Flaco Jiménez brings his legendary virtuosity to Tejano waltzes, polkas, and party music and Cory Chisel, Robert Ellis, and Jonny Fritz—the celebrated young singer-songwriters of “grassroots country supergroup” Traveller (NPR)—summon the wistful soul of the American heartland. At 6 pm, guitarist Vernon Reid of Living Colour, Philly rock’n’rollers Low Cut Connie and pioneering alt-country band The Jayhawks pay tribute to rock-n-roll innovator Chuck Berry.
