Three Rivers Arts Festival announces concerts

April 13, 2010 - Andy Gray

Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers Arts Festival has announced the majority of the concert lineup for its 50th anniversary edition.

Free concerts featuring national acts are offered nearly every night of the festival, which runs from June 4 to 13 at Point State Park downtown. This year’s performers will be:

June 4 – Alejandro Escovedo

June 5 – Guster

June 6 – Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Nathaniel Rateliff

June 8 – Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit and Tift Merritt

June 9 – Los Amigos Invisibles

June 10 – Ingrid Michaelson and Matt Morris

June 11 – Kris Kristofferson and Justin Townes Earle

June 12 – To be announced

June 13 – Patty Griffin and Guggenheim Grotto

Alejandro Escovedo and Jason Isbell (formerly of the Drive By Truckers) are a couple of my personal favorites, and Ingrid Michaelson’s "Girls and Boys" disc has gotten extensive play on my iPod the last couple of years. And Kristofferon is unmatched as a songwriter, even if his singing voice is, to put it gently, an acquired taste.

All of the concerts start at 7:30 p.m. on the Dollar Bank Stage in Point State Park except for the Sunday events, which start at 6 p.m.
