Lincoln Center

If on you're way out of the subway in late July you happen to notice a busker that looks a helluva lot like Billy Bragg surrounded by an army of other guitar-weilding maniacs, don't be alarmed. The spectacle is just the opening act for the two+ week Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival, which will feature shows with Mavis Staples (as discussed), "Laurie Anderson and Friends", Bettye LaVette, a girl-group heavy Ponderosa Stomp, the 28th Annual Roots of American Music Festival, The Bar-Kays, and many, many others at the Damrosch Park Bandshell and other Manhattan locations from July 27th until its close on August 14th. The full schedule is below.

Billy Bragg leading The Big Busk in the UK
The Big Busk

The Big Busk is the first performance scheduled (and it happens twice on July 27th), and will see Bragg leading a play-along concert flanked by an army of cue-cards detailing what chords he is playing. Check out a video from a 2008 'Big Busk' that took place in England, below.

Billy Bragg will also make up his cancelled dates from earlier this year around that 7/27 appearance. He'll play City Winery in NYC on 7/26 (tickets), 7/28 (tickets) and 7/29 (tickets).

All Lincoln Center festival dates and lineups, and all Billy Bragg tour dates are below.

This is an amazing lineup. I'm gonna camp out there for several days. Good to see truly homegrown American musical art forms combined with excellent musicians from around the world.

Wow, that busking looks like a blast. I wonder if he'll draw that big a crowd across the pond.

Steve Cropper looks like Steven Seagal.

I don't think Americans will be into this. Pillow fights in Union Square and no-pants day are more NY's style nowadays.

What's a counterculture again?

Your in for a treat when Rudy "Tutti" Grayzell comes on the scene at the Lincoln Center on Aug.13th. He's not lost that vibrant energy on stage. He's a man for the audience; they love him and he loves them.
