Lincoln Centerâ€™s acclaimed series American Songbook returns for its ninth season celebrating the diversity and breadth of American popular song. For 18 nights of cabaret, folk, pop, country, rock, and bluegrass, the series will explore the best of the golden age of musical standards and todayâ€™s most dynamic contemporary songwriting. The 2006â€“2007 season will bring to The Allen Room stage some of todayâ€™s most gifted interpreters of song including Calexico! This season continues the tradition of presenting some of todayâ€™s most innovative singer-songwriters, from a variety of genres, who are expanding the American songbook in their own unique ways.
Thursday, February 8 (2 shows – 7:30pm & 9:30pm):
CALEXICO draws on influences as diverse as country, 50â€™s jazz, blues, rock, and even gypsy music, and Portuguese Fado, but you can also hear echoes of the indigenous music found around their home base in the American southwest. All of this lends an ecclectism to their driving indie-rock recordings, and it will surely be on display for their American Songbook double-bill debut.
In the intimate setting of The Allen Room, Frederick P. Rose Hall, located on the 5th floor of the Time Warner Center at Broadway and 60th St.
TICKETS for the general public can be purchased via CenterCharge at 212-721-6500, at the Avery Fisher Hall Box Office, or at the Frederick P. Rose Hall Box Office beginning January 3, 2007.
