dear father

What: Livestreamed concert for Father’s Day
Where: City Winery online
When: Sunday, June 21, $12, 5:00
Why: Last month, City Winery hosted a special livestreamed Mother’s Day concert, centered around Billy Bragg’s new song for his mom, “Can’t Be There Today.” Now the newly relocated club will be serenading dear old Dad, inspired by Colin Hay’s “Dear Father” from his 2011 album, Gathering Mercury. In the song, the former Men at Work leader sings, “Dear father, you’re in my reflection now / As I reach out and touch you now where did you go?” Parts of New York are opening up and some families will be able to gather together on Sunday, but many more won’t be able to. So “Dear Father: Colin Hay and City Winery Present A Father’s Day Streaming Special” seeks to fill at least some of the void, with appearances from wherever they’re sheltering in place by Hay, Billy Bragg, Joan Osborne, Willie Nile, Dar Williams, Rickie Lee Jones, Keb’ Mo’, David Bromberg, Jorma Kaukonen, Bruce Cockburn, Martin Sexton, and others, with Rita Houston serving as emcee. Tickets are $12 for the 5:00 show.
