Singer/songwriter Andrew Bird will open the 2011 Celebrate Brooklyn! season in an unprecedented free performance. The classically inspired, whistling, violin wielding lyricist is no newcomer to this city – he sold-out Carnegie Hall following the release of his latest album Noble Beast. Esquire calls him, “The only performer who’s lit up both Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo with a combination of vocals, violin, guitar, glockenspiel and whistling … he uses centuries-old instrumentation to give depth and soul to folk rock.”
The BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival is one of New York City's longest running, free, outdoor performing arts festivals and is held every summer at the Prospect Park Bandshell. View seating arrangements here.
