Lincoln Center’s 2013 American Songbook Series

The 15th season of Lincoln Center's American Songbook series has begun.

The 2013 American Songbook series at Lincoln Center has begun, and this year beyond the already numerous shows in the Allen Room, there are “a series of weekend-only performances by performers and composers presented in the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse” which allow the audience an ever closer view of the performers.

This year’s lineup includes Tom Morello performing as ‘The Nightwatchman’ (you may recall his support for OccupyWallStreet), Bonnie “Prince” Billy (aka Will Oldham), Broadway star’s Kristin Chenoweth and Cristin Milioti (separate shows), now NYC resident Sondre Lerche, Lost in the Trees (who had the best album of 2013 according to the Wall Street Journal, and for the final performance, cellist Ben Sollee.

The lineup is below but for more details and to purchase tickets for this Lincoln Center series, visit www.americansongbook.org/.
