Scheduled for one night per month in City Winery venues in New York, Chicago, Nashville and Napa, each concert is described as featuring an artist “whose musicianship and excellence sets the standard for live performance.”
The collective brainpower behind the project comes from City Winery national programming director Shlomo Lipetz, Newport Folk Festival producer Jay Sweet and Americana Music Association executive director Jed Hilly.
“The Newport Folk Festival and the Americana Music Association are torchbearers in presenting not only some of the best music today, but also in discovering amazing new talent,” Lipetz said. “We are thrilled to present this series with these prestigious music loving organizations.”
At this time “State Of The Union” is scheduled through May and includes performances by Aaron Neville, Shawn Colvin, Buckwheat Zydeco and North Mississippi Allstars. Here’s the schedule, broken down by venue.
