The Americans – lecture/performance (Banners Series 2019)

April 16 @ 12:00 am - 2:00 am

T Bone Burnett calls The Americans “Genius twenty-first century musicians that are reinventing American heritage music for this century.”

This lecture/performance hybrid treats you to an evening of stunning acoustics and deep knowledge on the pre-war recording era.

The Americans appeared throughout “American Epic”, a four hour primetime PBS / BBC special produced by Jack White, Robert Redford, and T Bone Burnett, featuring Nas, Elton John, Alabama Shakes, and Willie Nelson.

The Americans have also performed alongside Nick Cave, Lucinda Williams and Ryan Bingham, they’ve performed on the “Late Show with David Letterman”, and even played the first song at Reese Witherspoon’s wedding.
