Jason Isbell @ Prospect Park 7/25/2015
It was a pretty good weekend for Jason Isbell. His new album, Something More Than Free, debuted at #5 on Billboard's album chart (#1 on Rock and Folk) and he played one of his biggest NYC shows ever on Friday night (7/24) in Prospect Park with opener Dawn Landes. His set included songs from the new record, older solo material as well as a few from his days in Drive By Truckers.
On Saturday (7/25), Jason played Newport Folk Festival and you can stream a recording of that performance via NPR, below.
Sunday he opened for My Morning Jacket (at least one reviewer says he played the better set!)
Pictures from the packed show in Prospect Park continue below. Isbell's setlist is down there too....
