Roosevelt Island Live Summer Concert Series With Leah Siegel & Chana Rothman Saturday June 13 4 PM At Riverwalk Commons

You Tube Video of Leah Siegel Performing The Motorcycle Song

On Saturday afternoon at 4 PM, come enjoy a free Roosevelt Island concert on the Riverwalk Commons behind the F Train Subway station as part of the Roosevelt Live Summer Concert series . Leah Siegel is performing and is described as follows by The L Magazine:
In NYC songwriting circles — that scene that seems to exist at places like Joe's Pub and the Living Room, where Norah Jones' career trajectory is everyone's goal — Leah Siegel has been an artist to watch for quite a few years now, with her soulful, elegant songs that sit somewhere between the sparse weirdness of indie-folk and the straightforward palatability of regular folk
Also performing will be Chana Rothman. Roosevelt Live says of Ms. Rothman:
Chana Rothman uniquely fuses Lilith-esque singer/songwriter folk mentality with progressive worldbeat in two languages. Like an eclectic '07 Rickie Lee Jones/Joni Mitchell, her politics, her obvious bohemianism and her delicate vocal phrasing push her sound into a delicious mix that also incorporates reggae and hip hop
According to The L Magazine:
New York City has the best free outdoor summer music in the entire world. Better than France, better than China, even better than Spain. So don't miss it.
and has a Summer Preview of New York City concerts.

Free concerts are events where various types of music are introduced. I like the featured solo acts that you mentioned in your post. My wife and I like Norah Jones' music. The performance video that you showed is of the same musical quality. Similarly, we watch such musical performances live during summer concerts in Denver. There are a lot of interesting shows at summer events in Denver. It's the time of the year when everyone is gathering in outdoor venues to enjoy quality music with friends and loved ones. I'm looking forward to amazing acts this season!
