At 2,200 acres, Freshkills Park will be almost three times the size of Central Park and the largest park developed in New York City in over 100 years. The transformation of what was formerly the world’s largest landfill into a productive and beautiful cultural destination will make the park a symbol of renewal and an expression of how our society can restore balance to its landscape. In addition to providing a wide range of recreational opportunities, including many uncommon in the city, the park’s design, ecological restoration and cultural and educational programming will emphasize environmental sustainability and a renewed public concern for our human impact on the earth.

The Freshkills Park tour will depart from the St. George Ferry Terminal in Staten Island, and will take you by bus to see behind the scenes at Freshkills Park. Freshkills Park staff will be on hand to guide you through the history of the site as the Fresh Kills Landfill and share with you the development of new capital programs at Freshkills as part of the Draft Master Plan for the site designed by James Corner Field Operations. The tour lasts roughly one and a half hours and will return to the ferry.

Please sign up for this tour on the Freshkills Park Events Page. Email freshkillspark@parks.nyc.gov with questions. There is limited space on this tour, registration is required.

At 2,200 acres, Freshkills Park will be almost three times the size of Central Park and the largest park developed in New York City in over 100 years. The transformation of what was formerly the world’s largest landfill into a productive and beautiful cultural destination will make the park a symbol of renewal and an expression of how our society can restore balance to its landscape. In addition to providing a wide range of recreational opportunities, including many uncommon in the city, the park’s design, ecological restoration and cultural and educational programming will emphasize environmental sustainability and a renewed public concern for our human impact on the earth.

The Freshkills Park tour will depart from the St. George Ferry Terminal in Staten Island, and will take you by bus to see behind the scenes at Freshkills Park. Freshkills Park staff will be on hand to guide you through the history of the site as the Fresh Kills Landfill and share with you the development of new capital programs at Freshkills as part of the Draft Master Plan for the site designed by James Corner Field Operations. The tour lasts roughly one and a half hours and will return to the ferry.

Please sign up for this tour on the Freshkills Park Events Page. Email freshkillspark@parks.nyc.gov with questions. There is limited space on this tour, registration is required.

A book talk with the author, Susan Herrington, and subject, Cornelia Hahn Oberlander

Cornelia Hahn Oberlander, has been instrumental in the development of the late, twentieth-century landscape design ethic, one that is truly modern – and audaciously abstract.

Both the author, Susan Herrington, and Ms. Oberlander will be in New York for a short presentation and reading to be followed by questions and answers, and a book signing. The book will be available for sale at the event.

Born in 1921, Oberlander fled Nazi Germany at the age of eighteen, going on to become one of the few women to graduate from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. For six decades she has practiced socially responsible and ecologically sensitive planning for public landscapes, including Robson Square and its adjoining Provincial Law Courts—one of Vancouver’s most famous spaces.

The tour is funded by the Canada Council for the Arts.

Matthieu Chedid is the son of French singer Louis Chedid, and the grandson of the Egyptian-born French writer and poetess Andrée Chedid. A talented multi-instrumentalist, Chedid performs and records under the stage name -M-. Created as a means of overcoming his shyness on stage, the pseudonym comes from Chedid's first initial but also refers to the similar sounding French word “aime”, meaning “love”. The character -M- is a superhero, noted for having a playful nature, and recognized for his flamboyant costumes - primarily monochrome suits with slim trousers, long jackets with upward pointed collars and glasses styled into the shape of an M. Since 1997 and his first album and tour, he has been collaborating with a number of artists, both on stage and in the recording studio.

It's been quite the ride for Émilie Simon since her debut album took off back in 2003, the electronic album was critically acclaimed and went on to become a huge commercial success. Side-stepping her pared-down electronic beginnings, Simon pirouettes Mue, her sixth album, into fresh, sonic territory with lyrical reveries that sensuously saddle up to lush, organically rich string and brass arrangements. Despite writing all the songs and arrangements herself, the album still boasts a strong entourage: Sally Herbert (Bat for Lashes, Pete Doherty) conducted the string ensemble; saxophonist Gary Barnacle (The Clash, David Bowie, The Pet Shop Boys) plays in the brass ensemble; Tahiti Boy, Ian Caple, and David Kahne (Lana Del Rey, The Strokes, The Bangles) all contributed to the production; and Chris Cody (TV on the Radio) mixed the album. With a cast like this, Mue successfully combines fierce contemporary pop together with the Romantic effervescence of traditional musical ballads. The result is refreshingly powerful. Throughout, Mue boldly opens new doors with sonic arrangements that dance exclusively to the beat of ecstatic self-actualization, thereby shedding all the lies and trappings of false starts and promises by opening the windows and letting one's hair down.

A sensational summer dance party featuring new live interpretations of disco, funk, soul and house classics. On the day before New York's famous Pride Festival, CLUB CLASSICS LIVE! assembles powerhouse performers to recreate the magic of legendary NYC dance clubs like Studio 54 and the Paradise Garage. Expect to dance your behind off to live renditions of songs associated with iconic DJs like Larry Levan and Frankie Knuckles, and iconic record labels like West End, Salsoul and Casablanca. Curated and directed by Jason King, producer/scholar and host of NPR's R&B/soul streaming radio channel, CLUB CLASSICS LIVE! gathers an impressive array of headliners, including pop sensation Sam Sparro, house legends Ultra Nate and Kevin Aviance, and the ladies from the original line-ups of Chic (Norma Jean Wright, Alfa Anderson, and Luci Martin). Acclaimed dance music 'supergroup' Company Freak supplies the music as house band, along with invited guests. DJ David Depino, long associated with Larry Levan and the Paradise Garage, spins the opening set. CLUB CLASSICS LIVE! is a once-in-a-lifetime party that should not be missed.

Part soul crooner, part pop star with an ever-morphing, chameleon-like quality, Sam Sparro coasts a fine line between disarmingly earnest and chic, credible cool. He has become known not only for his distinct, scale-defying vocals and epic live shows, but also as a visual artist and style icon. In 2008 he hit the mark with his career changing single Black & Gold which received critical acclaim and shot to No.2 in the UK, No.4 in Australia and top 20 in 14 countries. Sam’s sophomore release, Return to Paradise was a play on nostalgia and “paradise garage” – a genre derived from the discotheque scene in New York in the late 70s, famous for its unique and eclectic style of disco and dance music. In 2013 Sparro released Quantum Physical: Volume One, which finds Sam digging into both his 1990’s and current 12” Vinyl collection for sonic stimulus, while lyrically addressing issues we’re seeing in our day to day lives all over the world. He's toured with the likes of Adele and Robyn, and headlined his own tour playing festivals around the world including Glastonbury and Coachella.

Ultra Naté has remained a musical chameleon, embracing a variety of sounds, from R&B/hip-hop, soul and disco to house, rock and electro-pop 25 years after sashaying onto international dance floors. In 1998 Ultra released the anthem "Free" which became an international platinum selling single and has become a dance classic. Shortly after in 1999 her smash rework of "If You Could Read My Mind" with Jocelyn Enriquez & Amber saw Ultra in the Studio 54 soundtrack and followed the crossover success. In 2013 Ultra released her eighth studio album "Hero Worship" featuring collaborations with a list of who's who in dance music - showing she's always had her finger on the pulse. A humble, hardworking legend, today Ultra continues to record tirelessly and evolve as an artist who is also songwriter, producer, DJ, label owner, club promoter and live performer - a highly sought-after darling of the international dance scene.

Legendary drag icon Kevin Aviance, who's a member of the House of Aviance, became an underground sensation in the late-'90s gay dance scene, releasing # 1 Billboard dance hits and taking his drag show on the road. Inspired largely by Grace Jones, though also citing Boy George as an influence, Aviance made a name for himself primarily in New York's thriving gay scene, affiliating himself with other dance icons like Junior Vasquez, Tony Moran, Victor Calderone and the late Peter Rauhofer. It wasn't long before novelty tracks like "Cunty," an aggressive update of "Din Da Da," the S&M-tinged "Rhythm Is My Bitch" and "Alive" which become popular club anthems that allowed him to perform throughout North America, Europe and Asia.

Style, sophistication, and soul. That’s what Alfa Anderson, Luci Martin, and Norma Jean Wright brought to CHIC as the group’s original lead vocalists. Alongside producers Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards, and drummer Tony Thompson, these legendary ladies made CHIC synonymous with infectious hooks and timeless grooves. They collected a wall of gold and platinum albums, fueling the charts with hits that dominated clubs and airwaves across the globe. To the delight of their dedicated fans, Alfa, Luci, and Norma Jean have reunited as Anderson, Martin & Wright to celebrate a legacy that encompasses some of the most groundbreaking music ever recorded. With new music in the works, Alfa, Luci, and Norma Jean are ready to deliver their classy, high-energy, roof-raising show to audiences all around the world. For these Former Ladies of CHIC, the good times are just beginning.

DJ Andre Collins grew up in Bronx, New York. His career spans over three decades and bears witness to the phenomenon called “House Music.” He has played and learned from the industry elites, such as Nicky Siano and Tee Scott. Andre was the resident DJ at the legendary “WAREHOUSE” and had guest spots at Better Days, The Nickel Bar, Midtown 43, The Lenox Lounge and Karma. Andre’s brand of Universal Love of House Music has been heard internationally in Japan, Europe and the Caribbean. He is known for his creative mixing of music with pulsating vibes and lyrical content. DJ Andre is inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Jessie Jackson, Maya Angelou and President Barack Obama and often incorporates their messages in his music. He takes his Universal Love of House Music to the radio waves, every Friday on WHCR/90.3 FM-The Voice of Harlem.

<![CDATA[SummerStage Presents Beck]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/07/01/summerstage-presents-beck http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/07/01/summerstage-presents-beck Date: July 1, 2014

Beck has traveled light years from being pegged as a reluctant generational spokesperson when “Loser” metamorphosed from a rejected demo to a ubiquitous smash. Instead he wound up crystallizing much of the post-modern ruckus of the ‘90s alternative explosion, but in his own unpredictable manner: Beck’s singular career has been one that’s seen him utilize all manners and eras of music, blurring boundaries and blazing a path into the future while simultaneously foraging through the past.

Surfacing just as alternative rock went mainstream, no small thanks to his 1994 debut Mellow Gold, Beck quickly confounded expectations with subsequent releases including the lo-fi folk of One Foot in the Grave, delivered on the K imprint. But the album that truly cemented Beck’s place in the pantheon was 1996’s multi-platinum Odelay, that touched upon all of his obsessions, providing a cultural keystone for the decade from the indelible hook of “Devil’s Haircut” to the irresistible call and response of the anthemic “Where It’s At.”

From the world-tripping ballads and atmospherics of 1998′s Mutations and the florescent funk of 1999′s Midnite Vultures through the somber reflections of 2002′s Sea Change, 2005′s platinum tour de force Guero and 2006′s sprawling The Information, no Beck record has ever sounded like its predecessor. In the interim since his last album, 2008′s universally acclaimed Danger Mouse-produced Modern Guilt, Beck has eschewed the typical album/tour/repeat cycle of the music business. Instead, he has expanded his creative palette into such multi-media endeavors as a one-time-only live re-imagination of David Bowie’s “Sound and Vision” utilizing 160+ musicians in a 360-degree audiovisual production and Beck Hansen’s Song Reader, released December 2012 by McSweeney’s as 20 songs existing only as individual pieces of sheet music, never before released or recorded, complete with full-color original art for each song and a lavishly produced hardcover carrying case.

Beck’s relentless creative tide continued unabated throughout 2013 with three standalone singles released digitally and on 12-inch vinyl (“Defriended,” “I Won’t Be Long,” Gimme”), custom-created performances for Doug Aitken’s recent Station to Station series of transient happenings, a run of live shows–touted by reviewers the world over as among the very best of his career–and special Song Reader events in which Beck and eclectic line-ups brought the book to life in unforgettable evenings staged in only a handful of cities including in San Francisco, London, and most recently Disney Hall in Los Angeles.

And now Beck rolls into 2014 with the promise of not one but two new records. First up, and possibly the single most anticipated release of the new year, is Beck’s 12th album, Morning Phase. Likened by some to a companion piece of sorts to Beck’s 2002 masterpiece Sea Change, Morning Phase features many of the same musicians who played on that record–and who also currently accompany Beck live: Justin Meldal-Johnsen, Joey Waronker, Smokey Hormel, Roger Joseph Manning Jr., and Jason Falkner. Preceded by the sublime first single “Blue Moon” the stunning “Waking Light” and the recent live debuts of “Morning,” “Unforgiven” and “Wave,” Morning Phase harkens back to the stunning harmonies, classic Californian song craft and staggering emotional impact of that record, while surging forward with infectious optimism.

Raised by musical parents, it was apparent at an early age that Tewodros Kassahun, (now know as Teddy Afro) had a deep love of music. Over the past ten years, Teddy has emerged as the number one voice in Ethiopia, breaking records for album sales and show attendance. He is known far and wide as the rising star of East Africa. Using Reggae rhythms combined with traditional sounds his songs are sung exclusively in the national language of Ethiopia, Amharic. Influenced by Ethiopian Maestro Tilahun Gessesse and international Reggae superstar Bob Marley, he sings of freedom from tyranny and self-emancipation.

Noura Mint Seymali is a nationally beloved star and one of Mauritania’s foremost musical emissaries. Having begun her career at age 13 as a supporting vocalist with her legendary step-mother Dimi Mint Abba, Noura Mint Seymali was reared in a transitive culture where sounds from across the Sahara, the Magreb, and West Africa coalesce in the dynamic language of the Moorish griot. Fueled by the exploratory sound of her husband Jeiche Ould Chighaly’s distortion-fueled psych guitar lines and a declaritive rhythm section, Ousmane Touré (bass) and Matthew Tinari (drums), Noura Mint Seymali has already made a formidable debut on the international stage. Performing at events like Festival-au-Desert (Mali), Hayy Festival (Egypt), and Festival Timitar (Morocco) and collaborating with artists like Tinariwen, Bassekou Kouyaté, and Baaba Maal, Noura Mint Seymali is steadily gaining wider recognition, determined to bring Mauritanian music to the world.

Hahu Dance Group are a contemporary modern traditional group that aims to promote Ethiopian culture, art and indigenous knowledge all over the world. Hahu won Ethiopian Idol in 2011, and represents Ethiopian multiculturalism, by including four traditional dancers each hailing from different ethnic groups, showing a true sense of community.

<![CDATA[SummerStage Presents: Catalan Sounds On Tour: Mishima / Txarango / DJ sets by Headbirds]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/07/20/summerstage-catalan-sounds-on-tour-mishima-txarango-dj-sets-by-headbirds http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/07/20/summerstage-catalan-sounds-on-tour-mishima-txarango-dj-sets-by-headbirds Date: July 20, 2014

Saying the name Mishima is speaking about not only the great Japanese writer but one of Barcelona’s most influential bands of the 21st Century. Despite the fact they started singing in English, the five-piece band fronted by David Caraben started using his mother tongue around 2005 and paved the way for the new wave of indie bands writing songs in Catalan language. Loved by the press and with a fan base growing in geometrical progression, they’ve just released a new album, their seventh, recorded at the mythical Black Box Studios with the help of Peter Deimel (The Kills, The Last Shadow Puppets, Anna Calvi). Hailed as their best, “L’ànsia que cura” (TRIS-Warner, 2014), captures the raw energy of their live set and a sophisticated range of influences including The Smiths and JG. Ballard, Randy Newman and David Lynch, Tindersticks and the chanson française. Think The National born and raised by the Mediterranean Sea.

Txarango is the latest and most authentic phenomenon to be generated by the Barcelona sound. Born in the Raval, the city’s most multicultural neighborhood, the band plays an energetic live fusion that mixes reggae, dub, Latin music and native rhythms. On stage, their approach turns into pure feast and forcefulness. The message is clear: energy, joy and celebration. With their first album released, Txarango managed to perform in front of thousands of people in Spain's most emblematic festivals: Viñarock, Arenal Sound, MMVV (Vic) or BAM (Barcelona). Following-up their success of 2012 with a brand new album and tour in 2014, Txarango will continue to be one of Barcelona’s most exportable products.

Behind Headbirds hides the young producer Daniel Guijarro, who started in music as part of C156, a project from which Dani drew inspiration for the open mindedness and fusion of styles that have characterized his subsequent adventures. His first record as Headbirds was “Dead Kingdom,” a track that gave him media exposure with XLR8R, Playground and Concepto Radio, receiving critical acclaim for his first class fusion of UK funky, bass and tropical sounds. After several remixes for artists such as Pyrenees, Guillamino and Fur Voice, Guijarro is about to become one of the important names in contemporary national electronic music and is on the point of exporting his music to new territories. His next step is a 12” on El Segell, the new Primavera Sound record-label adventure, and the preparation of his debut LP that will be out before the end of the year. A record that will delve more deeply into the distinctive features of Headbirds between bass, house and techno atmospheres, combined with a clear melodic and dreamy input and songs that work in any context but always have one eye on the dance floor.

Hip hop, Indie-rock, punk and folk artists committed to social change will come together to honor musician and activist Pete Seeger. The program’s hosts are Gina Belafonte, Harry Belafonte’s daughter and Kitama Jackson, Pete Seeger’s grandson.

Mr. Seeger and Mr. Belafonte became international household names as singers who stood for change. For Belafonte that meant being involved in both the Civil Rights Movement in US and the Anti-Apatheid movement in South Africa. For Seeger that meant getting people singing, and then using song to lead marches and rallies around the world. From the labor movement to the Civil Rights movement to the environmental movement, Pete Seeger was always on the front lines.

Today’s artists aren’t that different from Seeger and Belafonte, they also use music as a means to give voice to the voiceless and inspire people to change the world for themselves, their communities and future generations.

Anti-Flag have been spreading their message of unity to the masses for two decades. Through the years, they’ve gone from non-stop tours crisscrossing North America in a dilapidated van to world tours spanning five continents. From humble beginnings in the Steel Town, Anti-Flag has worked hard to use music as a force for positive change. They are advocates for worker and human rights, environmentalism, animal rights, healthcare, conscientious objectors, prison reform and freedom for political prisoners, equality and peace. Last year Anti-Flag celebrated 20 years as a band. The band joined forces with Art For Amnesty to release an electrifying version of “Toast To Freedom,” the now-classic commemorative song written to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Amnesty International. The track — inspired by the imprisonment of Russian activist punk band Pussy Riot and benefiting human rights organization Amnesty International – was recorded at the legendary Hansa Studio in Berlin, Germany, and features Donots, Ian D’Sa of Billy Talent, and Bernd of Beatsteaks. Anti-Flag’s music and message is a call to action for people of all backgrounds and beliefs to focus on making tomorrow a better place for all. As Anti-Flag celebrates 20 years, they carry the torch forward putting emphasis of the band and every show played on community.

Toni Blackman is the first Hip Hop artist selected to work as a US Hip Hop Ambassador with the US Department of State. Her experiences in cultural diplomacy as an artist enables her to move through various communities (the arts, political circles, international gatherings, youth groups, academia, music industry, etc). As an official Hip hop Envoy she has traveled extensively throughout South Africa, Botswana, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Swaziland, Taiwan, Indonesia, the Philippines, performing and working in more than 30 different countries. She has also served as a juror for the American Music Abroad tour, a judge for ExchangesConnect programs, worked with international cultural arts competition, and has been consulted on selection of talent from both North America and Africa for various department initiatives. An Echoing Green Fellow, a former Open Society Institute Fellow, creator of Freestyle Union and Rhyme like a Girl, Toni is both highly respected as an artist and social entrepreneur. She was commissioned by the African Continuum Theater Company in Washington, DC to co-write and co-star in “The Hip Hop Nightmares of Jujube Brown” and has featured pieces at the NY Hip Hop Theater Festival. Toni’s first book, Inner-Course was released in 2003 (Villard/Random House). She recently completed Wisdom of the Cipher which will be released late Spring/Summer 2014. Her new book, Travels of a Lyrical Ambassador: A Poetic Memoir, has a 2015 release date, and will have an accompanying soundtrack.

The Chapin Sisters, Lily & Abigail Chapin are known for pristine harmonies and haunting melodies. They’ve been compared to sister acts of old and Appalachian family groups, yet their original songs and arrangements have a very contemporary aspect, with elements of pop, blues, folk, and even psychedelic rock. Abigail and Lily were born in Brooklyn New York. They couldn’t help but pick up a thorough grounding in traditional American roots music and folk-rock from their father, 3-time Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter Tom Chapin. He, along with their grandfather Jim Chapin, a jazz drummer, and their uncle, singer-songwriter Harry Chapin, created an environment wherein music held an almost sacred purpose, of bringing people together, whether it be for family, humanitarian purposes, or joyful release. When the family relocated to New York’s Hudson Valley, the girls attended a Waldorf school whose arts-based education added training in orchestral music and the complicated harmonies of Shape-note songs and old English folk ballads. Through elementary and high school they sang on over a dozen studio albums. With two critically-acclaimed full-length albums under their belt, 2008’s Lake Bottom LP and 2010’s Two, Abigail and Lily released A Date with the Everly Brothers in the Spring of 2013. Recorded in one day, live in the studio with a full band in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the album includes 14 of the sisters’ favorite Everlys songs, a tribute as well as a master class in harmony singing. The album was featured on NPR’s Weekend Edition, The New York Times’ T magazine, and included on many year-end top 10 lists. The Chapin Sisters are currently working on their next album.

Fronted by MC’s Rodstarz, and MC/Producer G1, Rebel Diaz shows us the true global power of Hip-Hop. After first performing at an immigrant rights march in New York City in 2006 in front of a half million people, the bilingual crew has taken the international community by storm with their explosive live shows. With influences ranging from Chicago house to South American folk, Rebel Diaz combines classic boom bap tradition with Hip-Hop’s global impact. The group’s versatility has allowed for them to share the stage with the likes of Common, Mos Def, and Public Enemy, while feeling right at home with acts like Rage Against the Machine and Calle 13. Multiple tours throughout Europe and Latin America have only solidified their international appeal. With roots in Chicago, and now based in the South Bronx, Rebel Diaz has also piqued the interest of the academic community with their poignant social commentary and energetic performances. They have spent the last 8 years visiting dozens of colleges and universities, facilitating workshops, speaking on panels, and performing at national conferences. Building on this growing network of positive young people in Hip-Hop, the group opened a community arts center in the South Bronx in 2008, the Rebel Diaz Arts Collective (RDACBX). On the heels of their critically acclaimed Otro Guerrillero mixtape series, and 2011′s #Occupy The Airwaves mixtape, Rebel Diaz released their debut album, The Radical Dilemma, in December 2013.

A protégé of legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, Steve Earle quickly became a master storyteller in his own right, with his songs being recorded by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, Travis Tritt, The Pretenders, Joan Baez and countless others. 1986 saw the release of his debut record, Guitar Town, which shot to number one on the country charts and immediately established the term “New Country.” What followed was an extremely exciting and varied array of releases including the biting hard rock of Copperhead Road (1988), the minimalist beauty of Train A Comin’ (1995), the politically charged masterpiece, Jerusalem (2002) and the Grammy Award Winning albums The Revolution Starts…Now (2004), Washington Square Serenade (2007) and Townes (2009). I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive (2011) is Steve Earle’s 14th Studio Album and shares the same name with his 2011 debut novel. Of the novel, Patti Smith stated, “Steve Earle brings to his prose the same authenticity, poetic spirit and cinematic energy he projects in his music. I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive is like a dream you can’t shake, offering beauty and remorse, redemption in spades.”

Nearly a decade after folk-rock duo Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion put out their first album together, the husband-and-wife pair feel like they’ve finally hit their stride on Wassaic Way, a collection of 11 new songs to be released August 6th on Rte 8 Records. Produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and Patrick Sansone at the Loft in Chicago, Wassaic Way finds Guthrie and Irion pushing further beyond the folky sound they established on 2005’s Exploration, their first studio LP. Any of the songs on Wassaic Way could be a single, which speaks to the strength of the songwriting, and also to Guthrie and Irion’s underlying goal: they wanted an album that moves them one step closer to getting at the heart of who they are as writers and performers.“Every record has been a huge learning curve, and you get pushed beyond your limits, and then your limits are way bigger,” Guthrie says. “I think we’re still at the beginning of what we can do as recording artists. I think we’re just starting to carve a path that we can walk on.”

James Maddock affirms his status as a fixture on the Folk and Americana scene with the release of Another Life, his latest album on Jullian Records. Nodding to ‘70s rock with shimmering acoustic guitars, an understated rhythm section and flourishes of fiddle, mandolin, piano and dobro, Another Life bridges the mainstream appeal of songwriters like Jesse Harris and Norah Jones and the quirkier sensibility of Loudon Wainwright. With funding entirely from fan contributions through PledgeMusic, Maddock worked with producer Matt Pierson, multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell (who’s played with Bob Dylan and Levon Helm) and bassist Tony Scherr (who plays with Norah Jones). After fronting the Columbia Records band Wood, whose debut Songs From Stamford Hill was featured prominently on TV shows such as “Dawson’s Creek,” Maddock moved from England to New York City in 2003. His 2009 album Sunrise On Avenue C won a New York Music Award for Best Americana Album, while follow-up Wake Up And Dream ranked among the top albums of 2011 in WFUV's Listener Poll. He has performed with Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nile, Aaron Comess (Spin Doctors) and David Immergluck (Counting Crows). According to radio legend Vin Scelsa, Maddock's "heartbreakingly beautiful and exquisitely crafted" music "touches the soul." Maddock is a constant live presence in the U.S. and Europe.

After thousands of concerts across tens-of-thousands of miles, Ruth Ungar & Mike Merenda have emerged as one of acoustic America’s most revered musical duos. As story-tellers, as singers, as poets and as parents (they tour with their two small children), Mike + Ruthy are heralds of an American cultural awakening that values honesty and togetherness, prefers grit to glitz, and revels in the old-fashioned telling of a story. Described as “rich, vintage Americana” by Time Out NY, Mike + Ruthy’s 2012 Woody Guthrie collaboration “My New York City” is being hailed as one of the most gorgeous pieces ever to have come out of the archive. Mike + Ruthy can hold an intimate audience in the palm of their hands, and then when it's festival season it's time to crank it up a notch and expand the band. An Americana mix of bass, drums and pedal steel add swirl and stomp, making their set even more powerful, and fun for the big stage. A beautiful, live, duo record and a fresh, full-band, studio album are currently in the works for release in 2014 and 2015 respectively.

Song writer and award winning Poet Nyraine Santiago better known as Nyraine is a poetic genius born and raised in Harlem. From his earliest years since the age of seven he would spend countless hours writing poems, paraphrasing and memorizing stanzas which eventually led to birthing his own creative talents. Nyraine’s first musical forays began at the early age of 11. He became a featured vocalist with the New York Boys Choir with whom he toured with throughout the United States and Internationally. Nyraine performed with legends such as Diana Ross , Michael Bolton and in 1995 was invited to Japan to sing for Pope John Paul III. A very influential point in his early performance life would be when Nyraine and the Boy's Choir sang alongside Coolio in the live telecast performance of “Gangsta’s Paradise” along with the Legendary Stevie Wonder and LV in Radio City Music Hall at the 1995 Billboard Music Awards. Nyraine has a way of drawing you into his mind and soul with his words which not many can do. It’s the combination of the vibrations, frequency of his vocals and his deep over standing of the words he speaks. Some of his current accomplishments include: wining the 2012 Underground Music Awards Lyricist of the year title, featured articles in the XXL Magazine and Hip Hop Weekly. He is the next great MCee .

Provocative, irreverent, controversial and wildly creative, Amanda Palmer is a fearless singer, songwriter, playwright, blogger and an audaciously expressive pianist who simultaneously embraces – and explodes – traditional frameworks of music, theater and art. Amanda first came to prominence as one half of the internationally acclaimed punk cabaret duo The Dresden Dolls. In 2008, she released her debut solo album, Who Killed Amanda Palmer, produced by Ben Folds and accompanied by a fine art photography book featuring text by esteemed author Neil Gaiman (who Palmer has since married). Amanda is widely known as “The Social Media Queen of Rock-N-Roll” for her constant and disarmingly intimate engagement with her fans via her blog, Tumblr, and Twitter, and has been at the vanguard of using both “direct to fan” and “pay what you want” business models to build and run her business. In May of 2012 she made international news when she raised nearly $1.2 million pre-selling her new album, Theatre is Evil via Kickstarter. Theatre is Evil went on to debut in the “Billboard Top 10” when it was released on Sept. 11, 2012, and has been released in over 20 countries on her own label, 8ft records. Amanda was invited to present a “TED Talk” at TED’s 2013 Conference. To date her Talk, “The Art of Asking”, has been viewed more than 4 million times worldwide. 2013 also saw the release of “An Evening with Neil Gaiman & Amanda Palmer”- a 3 CD collection of tracks culled from a live tour with her husband and best-selling author Neil Gaiman.

Rusted Root, the multi-platinum sextet out of Pittsburgh, evolved around front-man Michael Glabicki’s distinct sound and grew into a musical entity that has thrived in a non-genre specific category all its own. In addition to the two decades with Rusted Root, Glabicki is exploring new sounds and opening new doors with his solo carrer. He has started touring nationally as a trio act, and explains that although he has his roots with Rusted Root, the sound is very different. Glabicki has always invited the audience to participate in the creation of Rusted Root’s music. He frequently tests new songs on the road to see the fan reaction. Constantly writing new material, Glabicki finds that some of it fits his solo sound better than Rusted Root’s. He currently routes his solo tours around the Rusted Root schedule, and has multiple performances throughout the year. While not on tour with Rusted Root or working on his solo career, Glabicki also has started his own studio, Red Cloud in Pittsburgh. What started as a place for him to write and record new songs, has now grown into a full scale studio where local musicians can rent space to work on their new albums. A multifaceted musician, producer and songwriter, Glabicki’s talents are unique and extremely uplifting. His solo tour dates and new music are extensions of his creative talent, and will inspire all those who participate.

Clive Campbell aka DJ Kool Herc is credited with originating hip hop music. He first began to spin records in the recreation room of his Bronx building in the 1970's, isolating and mixing together breaks from different songs and forming the basis of what the world has come to know as Hip-Hop.

In the past two years, Ingrid Michaelson -- who'll drop her fifth studio album, "Lights Out" (Cabin 24/Mom+Pop) on April 15 -- has vaulted from overachieving indie-pop sweetheart to a bona-fide pop star. Her last release, "Human Again," debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard album chart (plus No.1 on iTunes). This achievement merely crowned the considerable success Ingrid had already earned with her previous compositions: beautiful, idiosyncratic songs that have been prominently featured in popular films, television and on regular rotation in commercials. Her DIY approach to making music -- composing her own songs, co-releasing albums on her Cabin 24 imprint, building an organic following through music-licensing, and back in her MySpace days (where she was discovered in 2006), promoting herself -- was a slam-dunk. Now, it had evolved into a well-oiled machine, The New York Times even weighed in, declaring her songwriting "smart," her tunes "irresistible" and her live show "seamless." Then, says Ingrid, "Everything just came to a screeching halt." While helping out seriously ill relatives, her dog died. Soon after, Ingrid herself fell sick with serious stomach issues. "My whole throat was on fire for a few months. I had to stop writing," she says, of the time between April and August 2013. "I was so ill, I couldn't sing." After seeing countless doctors -- "like, three a day" at its worst -- she got better and was able to resume writing "Lights Out." For someone associated with crafting sunny tunes about escapism, a creative detour into dusk seemed almost inevitable. Technically, "Lights Out" refers to the two words uttered on Ingrid's tour bus when everyone's ready to call it a night. But given recent developments, it's become a metaphor for contemplating mortality and letting go -- themes more thoughtful than they are dark. The album builds into intensity, but is anchored by the swelling pop-affirmation "Time Machine" and the sweetly buoyant "Girls Chase Boys," which fits squarely into her existing catalog. "We thought of that song as the bridge for people. I'm still respecting what people want, but showing them what I can do," she explains, adding: "Some of the songs, like 'Over You,' are written to sound like relationship-y songs, but they're not." The ethereal "Handsome Hands" is arguably "Lights Out"'s most left-of-center offering. "The song is about death, but it's also about the higher power," she explains. "In moments of desperation, even the most non-religious people pray. When you're pushed to your limits, you look for help from something other than yourself." Similarly, "Wonderful Unknown" is a positive, if beguiling narrative about the fears and uncertainties of growing old with your spouse, which she delivers in a lower register. An after-effect of her illness? "I don't think I've lost part of my voice," she explains, "but my voice has somewhat changed." Perhaps more dauntingly, "Lights Out" also marks Ingrid's entry into a brave new world of songwriting. Recorded in New York, Los Angeles, and Nashville, the album features six producers and ten co-writers, including singer-songwriters Katie Herzig and Trent Dabbs, as well as the very in-demand Busbee (Pink, Katy Perry, Lady Antebellum). "With every other record, I've always written all of the songs. I've worked with one producer. And we've stayed in one room," she says. "I've been such a control freak about my songs! But if you can get with the right person, there are ideas you could never come up with. It totally opens doors." And with opportunity comes meaningful change. "It's funny. It doesn't even feel like I wrote 'The Way I Am,'" Ingrid says of her platinum break-out single, recorded seven year ago. "It's a memory." She'll continue to perform it live as she tours "Lights Out" -- just stripped-down, recasting the flittering ditty into something weightier. "It feels like a little girl wrote that song. So much has happened to me in life."

NEULORE was formed in Nashville, TN in the Autumn of 2009 to tell stories of hope. After releasing a well-crafted EP, "Apples & Eve", they have begun to take their heartfelt songs to the masses. With a live show that not only entertains, but affects, leaving the audience with a sense that anything is possible, Neulore is captivating the hearts of all who draw near. Describing their sound as "truth in modern tones" and boldly stating that "the new folk music has arrived" they are firmly rooted in the tradition of community, the pursuit of wisdom, and the telling of timeless stories from a fresh perspective.

Secret Someones is the new project from NYC singer/songwriters Bess Rogers, Lelia Broussard, Hannah Winkler & drummer/multi-instrumentalist Zach Jones. Drawing inspiration from bands like Weezer, Talking Heads, and the entire Tom Petty catalog, the band is pure songwriting excellence. Loud, fun, and catchy as hell, Secret Someones are collectively bringing it, and they're just getting started.

The band got its' start busking on street corners in New York state and up through Canada, winning audiences along the way with their boundless energy and spirit. They eventually found themselves in Boone, North Carolina where they caught the attention of folk icon Doc Watson while playing in front of a pharmacy. He immediately invited the band to play at his MerleFest, helping to launch their career. Shortly thereafter the band relocated to Nashville for a residency at the Grand Ole Opry, where they entertained the crowd between shows.

It's been nearly fifteen years since these humble beginnings, and the band has gone on to tour the world, sell over 800,000 albums, become frequent guests on A Prairie Home Companion, and play renowned festivals like Bonnaroo, Coachella, and Newport Folk Festival.

In 2011 Old Crow found themselves embarking on the historic Railroad Revival Tour with Mumford and Sons, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. This tour had the bands riding a vintage train from California to New Orleans, playing shows along the way. The magic of this music excursion across America's vast landscape is captured in the Emmet Malloy directed documentary, Big Easy Express.

Old Crow Medicine Show now have four studio albums to their name, three of which were released by Nettwerk Records - O.C.M.S and Big Iron World produced by David Rawlings, and Tennessee Pusher produced by Don Was. On their newest album, Carry Me Back, Old Crow continue to craft classic American roots music while pushing themselves in new directions. Carry Me Back, released by ATO Records and produced by Ted Hutt, represents a new stretch of road in the timeless journey of a rambling string band.

Langhorne Slim:

There is nothing like the challenges and camaraderie of the road to inspire a songwriter who thrives upon the emotional energy and exhilaration only travel can deliver. Some singers are devoted to the pursuit of perpetual motion, and Langhorne Slim releases his wild soul in ways that come out of the discipline of live performance.

The 13 songs that compose Langhorne Slim & The Law's new "The Way We Move" are road-tested, rollicking and very rock 'n' rolling tunes that the songwriter perfected with his loyal band, and come out of the kind of good times and bad experiences that songwriters of Langhorne's lofty stature can turn into life-affirming rock 'n' roll. You could also call what Langhorne Slim does folk music, but then there's his sly, charming and open-hearted feel for pop music -- those summertime melodies that nudge you into a grin even when the song is about something bad.

For Langhorne Slim -- Pennsylvania-born self-taught guitarist who moves to Brooklyn at 18, begins feeling out his place in a burgeoning punk-folk scene, wends his way to the West Coast, and finds himself celebrated from Newport to Portland as one of today's most original singers and songwriters -- "The Way We Move" represents the sound of a band devoted to living in the moment. Riding the success of his 2009 full-length Be Set Free, Langhorne went through some changes over the last three years -- he lost his beloved grandfather, who is the subject of the new record's moving "Song for Sid," and moved on from a relationship that had lasted five years.

And there was the physical moving -- the literal side of the record's title. Pulling up stakes from his home of two years, Portland, Ore., Langhorne also has been touring non-stop with The Law. As he says, "I'm in a bit of a transitional period -- currently, the road will be home. That's just kind of my spirit, to be slightly restless." Perfecting their rangy sound out on the endless grey ribbon, Langhorne and The Law -- bassist Jeff Ratner, drummer Malachi DeLorenzo and banjo player and keyboardist David Moore -- went down to rural Texas in the summer of 2011 to work on new material. With some 30 tunes to consider, the quartet soaked up the Lone Star sunshine and developed arrangements and approaches for Langhorne's latest batch of songs.

Jeff Ratner had joined the group at the time of Be Set Free, and brought on multi-instrumentalist David Moore not long after. Moore and Ratner go way back, having moved to New York around the same time, and they've played together in what Jeff estimates are 15 bands. Langhorne's association with Malachi is equally deep. As the group played together through tours with the Drive-By Truckers and the Avett Brothers, and made appearances at the Newport Folk Festival and Bonnaroo, their bond became ever stronger, their music more confident. This is what you hear on "The Way We Move" -- forward motion meeting deep cohesion, all in the service of Langhorne's amazing songs and compelling vocals.

"We wanted Langhorne's songs to shine, and be as raw as the creatures that we are," Jeff says of the recording process. The band set up in the Catskill, N.Y. Old Soul Studio, a 100-year-old Greek Revival house retooled for recording. With studio owner Kenny Siegal co-producing, Langhorne & The Law fearlessly ran through an astounding 26 songs in four days, with Langhorne putting finishing touches on new tunes as they recorded. Langhorne says it was an intimate affair in Old Soul, with Moore's "banjo room" in a coatroom and the piano in the living room.

It comes through on "The Way We Move" -- the live feel of the sessions, which found Langhorne singing along with the band on every track. "Singing with the band that way, it's almost like I was performing on stage," he says. Cutting everything live to tape gave the band exactly what they'd been looking for: a super-charged evocation of their raucous, friendly stage performances. Langhorne and Jeff value in music for its rawness, and it doesn't matter whether that rawness -- the insurgent spirit that unites the Clash and Charlie Poole -- comes from in punk, country, soul or folk. Langhorne is a fan of Porter Wagoner, Jimmie Rodgers, Waylon Jennings, and early rock 'n' roll in general. But there's nothing referential or detached about the music Langhorne & The Law make. Langhorne writes songs that are yearning, sad, happy, defeated and optimistic, with hints of '50s rock 'n' roll balladry.

"We all love Wu-Tang Clan as much as we love Bowie, or Brazilian psychedelic pop," Langhorne says. On "The Way We Move," David's probing piano often provides focus for Langhorne's tales of love and loss. "On the Attack" begins with a delicate, watercolor section that turns into an ingenious variation on a classic soul ballad -- Solomon Burke meets punk blues in a smoky folk club. Langhorne addresses it to a current or past love. Similarly, "Past Lives" sports a piano introduction that gives way to a melancholy 6/8 ballad that perfectly supports lyrics about possible past lives and their interaction with the present.

It's a spirited, inspired slice of real rock 'n' roll -- exuberance meets hard-won experience in an explosive combination. David's banjo and Malachi's walloping drums add up to a new kind of folk music. The music drives, but there's no loss of subtlety. And when the group lays into the garage-rocking "Fire," with its funky electric piano and supremely callow lyrics about first kisses and the hot-burning passions of adolescence, it's clear Langhorne is one of the great rock 'n' rollers of our or any time.

Road-tested as the band is, the new music also shows just how far Langhorne Slim has come as a singer. He croons, exults and sings the blues throughout "The Way We Move." And there are his lyrics, which are about strange dreams featuring women who want him dead even as he desires them, the pressures of small-town life, ambition, and how much he appreciates his mother's love and support. That's all Langhorne and his life -- his mother, he says, really was amazingly supportive of his ambitions to become a musician, as was the rest of his family.

It comes through as you listen to his virtuoso demonstration of a singing style that seems alive to every fleeting emotional shade of meaning. Langhorne puts you in mind of John Lennon's singing from time to time -- it's nothing exact, and Slim doesn't do much music that is very Lennon- or Beatle-esque, but it's something in the timbre, and the openness of his vocals. It's worth repeating here that Langhorne learned Nirvana songs as he began to explore the guitar and songwriting, and Kurt Cobain's intense singing is another reference point.

But these guys don't play the reference game, and like to keep it raw. The new record moves in ways that are fresh for Langhorne Slim & The Law, and demonstrates all the ways we can go forward while keeping an eye on the mirror. They're laying down the law. It's very American, and when Langhorne Slim contemplates whether or not he fits in to any narrow-cast definition of this country's music, he replies with a perfect, laconic joke: "I think we fit in most places that would take us."

Spirit Family Reunion:

Spirit Family Reunion play homegrown American music to stomp, clap, shake and holler with. Ever since they started singing together on the street corners, farmer's markets and subway stations of New York City, their songs have rung-out in a pure and timeless way. When Spirit Family Reunion gather to sing, there is communion. Strangers and neighbors come to rejoice in the sound, and there is no divide between performer and spectator.

In a strange barroom or a grand music hall, at a barn dance or on the sunny street corner, Spirit Family Reunion keep the book open, and that old familiar feeling that was almost lost is again new.

"Dusty acoustic guitars, wailing fiddles and weeping accordions, with a woozy-yet-skintight rhythm section-- and topped off with burr-edged vocals that sound like they've been soaked in a Mason jar for generations -- it's the type of music that blurs the line between past and present so thoroughly, and so deftly, that time feels irrelevant."

<![CDATA[SUMMERSTAGE PRESENTS PASSENGER / LIAM BAILEY / STU LARSEN / DJ NATASHA DIGGS IN ASSOCIATION WITH GIANT STEP]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/08/10/summerstage-passenger-liam-bailey http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/08/10/summerstage-passenger-liam-bailey Date: August 10, 2014

The last year or so has certainly been a wild and wonderful ride for Passenger, aka Mike Rosenberg: from years dedicated to busking the streets of towns and cities across the globe, to worldwide recognition. Long before Passenger's unmistakable voice unexpectedly found a home on mainstream radio waves around the world, Rosenberg was committed to taking his music to the people literally one street at a time. When the Brighton UK-born artist's band broke up in 2007, Rosenberg inadvertently set about forging his own musical path as a genuine troubadour. He held onto the band's name, and began travelling across countries and continents, armed with only his guitar and his voice and a swag of unique songs. After nearly three years of travelling and three albums, Passenger had established itself as one of the most popular new acts on the Australian live circuit and started to regularly sell out rooms and theatres of 500-plus. It wasn't until the release of his second single, "Let Her Go," on his 4th album that the rest of the world began to tune in. "Let Her Go" has topped the 2.5 million mark in global sales, as well as over 78 million YouTube hits so far. Of course, you can still catch Passenger busking in almost every city he visits -- only nowadays, it's pretty much standing-room only!

Born to a Jamaican father and British mother, Liam Bailey’s musical influences range from soul to reggae, and punk to R&B. While his voice is often compared to that of Otis Redding and Sam Cooke, he’s as likely to reference Etta James as he is The Smiths. Known for co-writing Chase & Status’ Top 5 smash: “Blind Faith feat. Liam Bailey,” Liam’s initial introduction to the music business came via the late Amy Winehouse who, after meeting him released his first 2 EPs on her Lioness Records imprint. Amy first heard Liam’s music through a mutual friend & acclaimed producer Salaam Remi, who amongst others, is working with Liam on his debut album. The album, which was also co-written and produced by Bailey will be released by Flying Buddha (Sony Music Masterworks) in August, coinciding with a U.S. tour.


Stu Larsen was born in the town of Dalby, in Australia, a close-knit, religious community of less than 10,000 people. Nothing much happened in Dalby and that was pretty much how folks liked it. Predictability was what made people feel comfortable and Stu's career in a local Bank meant that by the age of 23, his life was pretty well mapped out for him.
In 2010, whilst working on the 'Boy and Bear' tour in Australia, Stu met Mike Rosenberg (of 'Passenger'), back in the days when money was tight and touring meant shared rooms and forged close friendships. Mike was moved by the quality of Stu's insightful material and invited him to support and tour-manage him. Alongside the madness and fame brought about for Mike by the massive success of 'Let Her Go', Stu kept on doing what he loves best - just travelling, sharing his music and taking pictures - but now with much broader horizons and to much larger audiences, building up a stronger and stronger following along the road. Stu has already achieved a #2 on the Australian singer-songwriter chart. Amazingly - and almost uniquely, this was been achieved without management or the backing of a label and was funded entirely by the sale of albums at gigs along his journey. Now, for 2014, Stu plans an album release and a solo tour of Australia, the UK, Europe and America.
