The Word & Wood Brothers To Play At Free NYC Festival

Brookfield Place Waterfront Plaza alongside the Hudson River in New York City will host the Lowdown Hudson Music Festival on July 14 & 15. Today event organizers have announced the lineup for this year’s fifth annual Lowdown Hudson Music Festival for which attendance is free-of-charge.

On July 14 reggae roots-rockers O.A.R. and singer-songwriter Ryan Bingham will perform at night one of Lowdown Hudson Music Festival. The festival’s second night, July 15, features soul/gospel/rock supergroup The Word along with The Wood Brothers. Medeski, Martin and Wood will be well represented on the 15th as the band’s keyboardist John Medeski is a member of The Word, while The Wood Brothers features MMW bassist Chris Wood. The Word released their sophomore studio album earlier this week. Check out our chat with Robert Randolph about the new LP.

Admission is free with no tickets or reservations required.
