Outdoor Music: Katie Mullins
On the Grounds
As cool breezes blow off the Hudson and the sun sets over the Palisades, enjoy an outdoor concert on the Great Lawn. Each Sunset Wednesday, New York City musicians capture the vibrant colors of summer in performances that feature jazz, popular music, show tunes and original songs. Tonight, Brooklyn-based songwriter Katie Mullins makes music that has been described as being "as unassuming as it is ambitious." She also sings and plays baritone ukulele, mbira and keyboards. A former opera singer and current early-childhood music educator, her two full-length albums, Pastoral (2009) and Wedding (2013), are collections of songs about dreams, longing and love's labors—both the fruits thereof and the things that get left behind. Joining her tonight are Emily Holden (violin/voice) and Rob Chamberlain (drums).Visitors may bring a chair or sit on the lawn to enjoy the music. No blankets, please.
Free with admission to the grounds.
