Iconic documentarian Ken Burns and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis explore the shared roots found throughout American music. With never-before-seen clips from Burns’ upcoming Country Music series, audiences will learn the fascinating and often intertwined histories of songs made famous by Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton, Bill Monroe and His Blue Grass Boys, Hank Williams, Vince Gill, Rhiannon Giddens, Stephen Foster, DeFord Bailey, Jimmie Rodgers, and others—and then hear brand-new arrangements of those songs written and performed by the JLCO.

Burns has some very special guests lined up to join the Orchestra, including several stars from the documentary, making this performance a special moment in the music’s ongoing story. From country music to jazz, folk to gospel, bluegrass to old country blues, there’s a deep commonality in our all-too-often segregated genres. In this exclusive Rose Theater event, Ken Burns and the JLCO will reveal, celebrate, integrate, and passionately perform that which unites us.
