Live is where Delta Rae truly flourishes. They played pretty much every festival under the sun, including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and Voodoo. Delta Rae just released a brand new EP, Chasing Twisters

Amos Lee @ Lowell Summer Music Series @ Boarding House Park
$45 Advance / $50 Day of Show / $145 Premium Seating
Taking inspiration from soul greats Stevie Wonder and Bill Withers and folk legends John Prine and Dave Van Ronk, Amos Lee directs his music with a spirit and presence rooted in American tradition. Amos delivers a unique brand of folk-soul music that aims to unite, uplift, and inspire. The "folk" side is reflected in his nimble acoustic guitar playing and the intimacy of his live performances. The "soul" strain comes through in the engaging song-poetry of his lyrics and in what the Philadelphia Inquirer described as his "easygoing voice" and "raw, unedited emotion." Lee has toured with legendary artists like Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, collaborated with Norah Jones and Lucinda Williams, and been regularly touted as a favorite songwriter and performer by the likes of The Band Perry and Lady Antebellum.

Rain Location: Lowell High School Auditorium, 50 French St.
