The Jayhawks, Mandolin Orange, and Parsonsfield will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.
For more than 30 years, The Jayhawks “have crafted widescreen power-pop with country-western affectations, summoning an easygoing romanticism and a skyward sound that makes even their sad songs seem happy.” (Portland Press Herald) 2016’s stellar record Paging Mr. Proust and a more recent collaboration with Ray Davies show they’re still at the top of their game. The sublime harmonies of North Carolina duo Mandolin Orange, who “approach traditional roots music from a fresh, modern perspective,” (Rolling Stone) and the raucous foot-stomping Americana of Parsonsfield round out a perfect Saturday at the Bandshell.
Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.
