Jimmy Cliff, Sigur Rós, St. Vincent, The National and Willie Nelson are just a few of the artists you've heard live on FUV from the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, and we added more great shows to the list this year.

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings (June 8)

The season kick-off happened on a chilly night, but the weather was no match for the soul-filled force and non-stop energy that Sharon and the band delivered. It was an honor and a thrill to have their performance air live on FUV, and you can now listen to it in the FUV Vault.

Ray LaMontagne (June 22)

After co-producing his new album, Ouroboros, with Jim James, Ray translated its expansive sound onstage with the help of Jim's My Morning Jacket bandmates: Tom Blankenship, Patrick Hallahan, Bo Koster and Carl Broemel. Add an opening solo acoustic set, a backdrop of a glowing, full moon, the beautiful summer night, and this show was nothing short of magic.

case/lang/veirs (July 26)

This collaboration of Neko Case, k.d. lang and Laura Veirs brings together three incredibly unique voices and songwriters on a new album. Onstage the mutual admiration that runs through the trio and its band was refreshingly clear, mixing solo songs and covers with the new material, plus incredible harmonies and a lot of amusing banter too.

Big thanks to all of the musicians who took the stage at these shows, and to the BRIC crew for welcoming FUV back once again.
