Neko Case, Billy Bragg & Booker T. Jones To Perform At Bumbershoot 2010

Once again Anti-Records artists will be featured prominently at the 40th installment of Seattle's popular Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival occurring this coming Labor Day, September 4-6th at the expansive and environmentally conscious Seattle Center. Joining in the festivities will be Neko Case, Billy Bragg and Booker T. Jones.

Neko Case (Sept. 4th - 7:15 PM) With her modern-day ballads with deftly crafted pop hooks and bluegrass rhythms, acclaimed songstress Neko Case connects with her audience on a deep and meaningful level. A member of celebrated band The New Pornographers, Case's increasingly popular solo career recently earned her two Grammy nominations for her latest breakout album entitled Middle Cyclone. Case's infectious musical hooks and creative lyrical imagery will undoubtedly linger in one's heart and soul.

Billy Bragg (Sept. 5th - 8:30 PM) After three successful decades, fiery folk punk Bragg remains a relevant and prolific musician and a committed political activist. Bragg, a national treasure in his home country of England, carries on the tradition of other music greats like Woody Guthrie, Joe Strummer and Bob Dylan, by combing vital inspiring music with an impassioned sense of social consciousness.

Booker T. Jones (Sept. 6th - 8:30 PM) Hammond B3 (organ) alchemist. Jones is a celebrated and instantly recognizable musical force. He started his storied career backing Otis Redding and Sam & Dave (among many others) and his albums with the MG's laid out the blueprint for the Stax sound, one of the most influential movements in rock & roll - example his enduring instrumental hit "Green Onions." Jones recent Grammy winning album Potato Hole, not only re-affirmed his greatness, it also re-introduces the neglected all-instrumental format to a noisy, crowded marketplace crying out for precisely the type of soul satisfying pleasure which Jones excels.
