Lincoln Center Out of Doors, August 7-24, 2008 – free shows

Damrosch Park

“Come to Damrosch Park for a Lincoln Center Out of Doors season jam-packed with dynamic, free programs that offer something for absolutely everyone, from tributes to beloved cultural icons to cross-cultural collaborations that blur the lines of genre and geography.

This season is highlighted by a host of vibrant and eclectic musical experiences. Catch the rhythmic fever of a funk-filled African tribute to the late Godfather of Soul, James Brown, when Still Black, Still Proud celebrates the “hardest-working man in show business.” Transcend 800 years of minimalism in a sublime triple bill presented in collaboration with Wordless Music.

Explore the power of multi-ethnic oral traditions with the return of the beloved La Casita festival, and celebrate our rich musical heritage from blues to New Orleans funk to bluegrass to punk with the 25th Annual Roots of American Music Festival.

Dance lovers will enjoy performances including the stirring Noche Flamenca, the premiere of Armitage Gone’s collaboration with Burkina Electric, Summer of Love; Doug Elkins’ witty take on The Sound of Music, Fräulein Maria, and David Dorfman’s underground, a provocative look at political protest.

Bring the family outside this August for a lively Out of Doors season that celebrates the performing arts at a price everyone can afford — absolutely free.”

Highlights also include a Hal Wilner and Adam Dorn tribute to Joel Dorn, the WFMU show with the Ex, and the many individual performers playing the two day 25th Annual Roots of American Music Festival. Examples include Pete Seeger, The Knitter, Chalie Haden with family (Petra) and friends, Patti Smith, and many more. Please leave your ‘Out of Doors’ recommendations in the comments.
