Lincoln Center Out of Doors

Lincoln Center Out of Doors

The Lincoln Center just announced the lineup for the all free Lincoln Center Out of Doors program which will take place during the month of August at Damrosch Park and the South Plaza of Lincoln Center. A lot of the shows look really great, especially the Hal Wilner tribute to Joel Dorn featuring Mose Allison, Mocean Worker, Dr. John and a host of other guests. The NY Debut of Fred Wesley and Pee Wee Ellis‘ tribute to James Brown with Vieux Farka Touré, Cheikh Lô, Martha High, and Fred Ross also looks really interesting.

Check out the full schedule after the jump.
