Bandshell

American Express Series with Josh Ritter, Martha Redbone + Birds of Chicago

Friday, July 8 , 7 pm – 10 pm, 2016

Josh Ritter performs at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.

Ten years ago Paste Magazine put Josh Ritter on its 100 Greatest Living Songwriters list, and the honor was well-deserved; his incisive narratives and warm delivery make him one of the finest storytellers in music. Exceptional writing abounds on this triple bill: the soulful vocalist Martha Redbone adapts William Blake’s poetry in her new project The Garden of Love, and Birds of Chicago, led by husband and wife JT Nero and Allison Russell, reflect on “the intense, freewheeling, all-too-fleeting attachments of youth” (NPR) with wistful, meditative lyrics, and luminous harmonies.

Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
