SummerStage 2019: Emily King (Opening Show)
with Durand Jones and the Indications, Madison McFerrin, DJ Reborn
Age Restriction: All Ages
|
Price: Free

Long time Lower East Side resident Emily King may have moved upstate to Woodstock, but hers will always be an East Side Story. The child of musicians, dropped out of school at 16 and cut her teeth at local haunts CBGB and The Bitter End. In the fifteen years since she signed her first record deal with Clive Davis’ J Records, her distinct brand of soulful R&B has been nominated for a Grammy and led to collaborations and performances with Nas, John Legend, Alicia Keys, Chaka Khan and Erykah Badu. She’s joined by Durand Jones and the Indications, a soul group with a throwback sound that channels the likes of Jackie Wilson and Curtis Mayfield. And Brooklyn singer-songwriter, Madison McFerrin, daughter of jazz legend Bobby McFerrin and sister to SummerStage alum Taylor McFerrin, will provide an opening set of what Questlove has dubbed “Soulappella.” Her unique a cappella take on soul music led Pitchfork to delcare she’s “making a cappella cool again.
