Celebrate Brooklyn will open its 30th season on June 12 with a performance by Isaac Hayes. This summer's lineup for the free concert series at the Prospect Park band shell includes Miriam Makeba; Beth Orton; a screening of the Bruce Lee movie "Enter the Dragon," with live accompaniment by Karsh Kale; a tribute to the R&B singer Bill Withers; and a benefit by Feist.
The Bill Withers tribute is one of Hal Willner's multi-artist shows.

Feist is about to leave on a tour that also has her playing two shows at Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC at the end of April.
