Lincoln Center Out of DoorsThe Americana Music Association and Lincoln Center have unveiled their 2015 lineup for "AmericanaFest NYC," running August 7-9, as part of Lincoln Center's Out Of Doors Series. Last year's "inaugural free-fest-of-down-home goodness" (New York Magazine) featured some of Americana's "biggest stars," and offered "a notion of Americana that's essential rather than prescriptive" (New York Times).

This year's bill includes gospel legends The Fairfield Four and The McCrary Sisters, Australian rocker Kasey Chambers, veteran singer-songwriter Iris Dement and GRAMMY-winning country artist Lyle Lovett.

It also boasts an eclectic tribute to Bob Dylan's seminal album Highway 61 Revisited, featuring Aimee Mann, Ted Leo, Shawn Colvin, Rodney Crowell, Pokey LaFarge, and Justin Townes Earle, with Watkins Family Hour (Nickel Creek's Sean Watkins & Sara Watkins, Fiona Apple) acting as the house band.

Free Performances by Artists Including: Lyle Lovett, The Fairfield Four, The McCrary Sisters, Iris Dement, Kasey Chambers, Plus A Tribute to Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited With Shawn Colvin, Rodney Crowell, Pokey LaFarge, Aimee Mann and Ted Leo, plus The "Watkins Family Hour" featuring Sean Watkins & Sara Watkins of Nickel Creek, Fiona Apple, Don Heffington, Sebastian Steinberg, and special guest Justin Townes Earle

All events are free with no tickets required. Events take place on Lincoln Center's Plazas between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenues, from West 62nd Street to West 65th Street (except where noted).
