about

History

Brooklyn Americana Music was founded in the wake of the Dumbo Arts Festival folding in 2014. DAF was an incredible visual arts open studio experience, where we produced the live music stages in loading docks, the tobacco warehouse, rooftops, industrial era lofts, and all along the river side for fifteen years. NYC Mayor Eric Adams, then Brooklyn Borough President gave us the thumbs up to forge ahead, and thanks to Brooklyn Arts Council we are supported by the Brooklyn Arts Fund and NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.

Brooklyn Americana music partners with artist owned and operated festival venues year round. We curate live music at Superfine, 68 Jay St Bar, Sunny’s Red Hook and special events at Jalopy Theatre for over 15 years. 

Non profit partners Dumbo BID enable live music in The Archway, and Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy support our stages on Pier 6.
