Angélique Kidjo, one of my favorite African artists (and one of my favorite artists, period) is coming to the Lowell Summer Music Series. She will appear at Boarding House Park on Sunday, July 14th! I have seen her several times (including last night at World Music’s CrashFest) and already cannot wait to see her again! I believe she is the first African musician to headline a show at the Series (many African performers have appeared at the Lowell Folk Festival over the years, however).
I’m With Her, a trio composed of Aoife O’Donovan, Sarah Jarosz, and Sara Watkins, has been announced for the 2019 season of the Lowell Summer Music Series (okay, Sara Watkins appeared at the Series with Nickel Creek at one of that band’s last shows). They will appear at Boarding House Park on Friday, July 19th! I have seen this band several times and I think they are a fabulous addition to the lineup.
The lineup for the 2019 Luck Reunion, held outside Austin, Texas during South by South West, was announced yesterday and as always it is amazing! Personal favorites include Willie Nelson, Steve Earle, Langhorne Slim, Mavis Staples, and Nathaniel Rateliff.
Other artists I have yet to, but have been wanting to, see include Low Cut Connie, Billy Strings, Yola and Sunny War.
Yes, friends, the Lowell Summer Music Series starts its stellar 29th season tomorrow, Thursday, June 13th! This weekend promises three incredible shows – I’ve seen all the artists (except Sunday night’s opener) perform multiple times and attendees are in for a treat each night as well as the rest of the summer.
Lucky Bostonians! This is going to be a fabulous new series, beginning tomorrow with The Weight Band! Tickets are still available (link is below) and when you go, pick up a copy of their terrific new album!
