Wednesday Night in Battery Park City: Beth Orton at Rockefeller Park
On this gorgeous summer evening we were lucky enough to be one of hundreds in the audience by the water at Rockefeller Park in Battery City for a memorable concert by the great Beth Orton, part of the River to River Festival.
Here's a video deankeim posted of Beth singing "Walk Right by It."
She was joined for some great numbers by Sam Amidon on guitar and banjo (some vocals) and Thomas Bartlett on piano. It was a wonderful ninety-minute show in a luscious setting.
Except for the helicopter noise, it was a perfect evening.
