    Rhiannon Gidden, Yola to Perform Free Lincoln Center Out of Doors Concerts This Summer

    The lineup for the 2019 Lincoln Center Out of Doors festival has been announced, and featuring among the performers taking the stage of the Damrosch Park Bandshell for the free series this summer are Rhiannon Giddens and Yola.

    Rhiannon Giddens will take part in NPR Music’s Turning the Tables Live: The Motherlode on Wednesday, July 31. The Motherlode, led by musical director Terri Lyne Carrington, marks the third season for the Turning the Tables partnership between NPR Music and Lincoln Center and will explore the work of female artists who originated and shaped recorded music from its earliest days to the 1960s, in jazz, blues, gospel, classical, and Latinx music. Also performing for the evening are Xiomara Laugart, Ledisi, Amina Claudine Myers, Cleo Reed, Valerie Simpson, Charenée Wade, and Lizz Wright.

    Yola will help close out the Lincoln Center Out of Doors season in the first of two nights in The Roots of American Music Weekend: Americanafest NYC, Saturday and Sunday, August 10 and 11. She will perform songs from her debut album, Walk Through Fire, in the Damrosch Park Bandshell that Saturday, August 10, before singer-songwriter Patty Griffin takes the stage. (The show comes just after Yola will have joined another label mate, Lake Street Dive, on tour.)

    For additional details on these concerts and to see the 2019 Lincoln Center Out of Doors lineup, including an evening with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy on July 26, visit lincolncenter.org/out-of-doors.

    Ry Cooder's critically acclaimed album Chávez Ravine, first released on Nonesuch Records in 2005, will make its vinyl debut on September 6. With a cast of legendary Chicano musicians, Cooder recounts the story of how a Mexican-American community was razed to make way for L.A.'s Dodger Stadium. "A remarkable song cycle," said Rolling Stone, "a brilliant and flavorful film-noir history lesson." The two-LP vinyl edition was remastered from the original high-resolution source files and pressed on 140-gram vinyl. The set comes in a gatefold tip-on jacket with a twenty-page, full-color booklet. It is available to pre-order now in the Nonesuch Store.
