Additional Artists Announced for Lincoln Center's Out of Doors 2018
Lincoln Center today announced additional artists to the Out of Doors 2018 lineup, with musicians covering genres like country, funk, rock, indie-folk and more. Held in Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park and beyond from July 24 - August 12, Out of Doors is one of the country's longest-running summer outdoor festivals, offering free music, dance, spoken word and family events to all.For the fifth year, AMERICANAFEST NYC (August 11-12), presented in association with Americana Music Association®, brings the sounds of roots, country, folk and more to Damrosch Park. Performances include the powerful soul and gospel singer Mavis Staples, prolific producer and vocalist Joe Henry, provocative songwriter and tender-twanged Margo Price, and the country-rock union of Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real. On July 29, Jonathan Wilson - celebrated musician, songwriter, and sought-after producer - plays his lush psychedelic folk-rock originals for a transformative night in Damrosch Park. Sharing the bill with Wilson is singer-songwriter Lucy Dacus, the indie singer-songwriter whose sensitive lyrics and moody guitars catapulted her to universal acclaim with the release of her sophomore album Historian earlier this year. The Super Soul Banned will join Peter Wolf on August 3, bringing a star powered funk band to the stage. This group was formed by legendary drummer Steve Jordan, who has performed, recorded, and produced with the likes of Keith Richards, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, Sonny Rollins, and many more. Jordan is joined on stage by Mix Master Mike of the Beastie Boys, Ray Parker, Jr., Kool & the Gang's Ronald Bell among others.
