Celebrate Brooklyn!—one of New York City's longest running, free, outdoor performing arts festivals—has announced the complete line-up for this summer's concert series in Brooklyn's Prospect Park. Among the featured performers this year are several Nonesuch artists: Lake Street Dive, Conor Oberst, Fleet Foxes, and Sam Amidon.

Lake Street Dive kicks off the entire 2017 Celebrate Brooklyn! season with a free Opening Night performance on Wednesday, June 7. The band kicks off their own US spring and summer tour, featuring music from their 2016 Nonesuch debut album, Side Pony, with a performance at New Orleans Jazz Fest this coming weekend.

Conor Oberst leads a benefit concert for Celebrate Brooklyn! on Thursday, July 20. He'll be joined by special guests Hop Along from Brooklyn and Hop Along from Philadelphia. Oberst begins his US tour, featuring music from his new album, Salutations, with Felice Brothers as backing band, in California next week.

Fleet Foxes give two nights of benefit concerts for Celebrate Brooklyn! on Tuesday, August 1, and Wednesday, August 2, performing songs from its Nonesuch debut album, Crack-Up, due June 16. The band begins its world tour in the Pacific Northwest later this month, including a hometown show at The Showbox in Seattle.

Sam Amidon plays his Celebrate Brooklyn! set ahead of Wilco guitarist Nels Cline on Saturday, August 5. Amidon's new album, The Following Mountain, is due out on Nonesuch on May 26.

Also among the performers taking to the Prospect Park Bandshell this summer are two artists familiar to longtime readers of the Nonesuch Journal: Malian duo Amadou & Mariam will perform on Friday, July 21, preceded by New York City collective Innov Gnawa and a DJ set from Ahmed Gallab; and Senegalese superstar Youssou N'Dour headlines on Saturday, August 12, preceded by Malian kora player Yacouba Sissoko.

    The acclaimed trio Mountain Man's first album in eight years, Magic Ship, is out now. The record includes eleven originals plus interpretations of songs by Ted Lucas and Michael Hurley, and a traditional hymn—"intimate, close-harmony songs that tap into an ageless essence of traditional ballads and lullabies as they contemplate companionship, family, love and death," says the New York Times. Nonesuch Store CD and vinyl orders include an exclusive signed print while supplies last; bundle options include an exclusive tote bag. The trio will be at Rough Trade in Brooklyn on September 24 and will tour the US this fall.
