Jeffrey Lewis is a peculiar musician, and in the best way possible. This native New Yorker is a comic book artist, educator, and writer, and somehow incorporates it all into his music. Lewis and his band blend elements of folk, storytelling, and indie rock into a unique, weird, and engaging performance you are guaranteed to never forget. Lewis is known to capture audiences across the world. He does more than plays music. He educates. He makes his audience think.

Also included in the line-up is Peter Stampfel and The Brooklyn & Lower Manhattan Banjo Squadron, Bushwick Gospel Singers, and Modern Hut.
