Lincoln Center Out of Doors. There's no better place to soak up musical Americana than outside under the sky—and no better price than free!—which is what makes Roots of American Music such a big draw every year. New Orleans and Appalachia collide on an afternoon bill featuring Hurray for the Riff Raff, Martha Redbone and Trixie Whitley; in the evening, Buddy Holly's old band, the Crickets, plays a grand finale before retirement, snuggled between Nick Lowe and Jason Isbell.
