    PORTSMOUTH—Prescott Park Arts Festivala non-profit arts organization, is building up momentum in announcing the *fourth wave* of concerts in the River House Restaurant Concert Series. Nationally touring acts, as well as regional and local favorites, will take the Wilcox Main Stage this summer in picturesque Prescott Park. With accessibility at the heart of the Festival's mission, all events are offered for an optional suggested donation.

    First up in the fourth wave of announcements is the anticipated return of the 39th Annual Tommy Gallant Jazz Festival. Prescott Park Arts Festival, in partnership with Seacoast Jazz Society, is delighted to once again present the annual Seacoast tradition that will feature a host of local, regional, and national talent, amplifying the different styles of the genre. So swagger on down to the park on Sunday August 28th with your fellow jazz cats and let the blue notes transport you to another era! This year’s Jazz Festival Lineup will be announced in May, so stay tuned for that exciting news.

    Next up is Dustbowl Revival. After spending years on the road, selling out hometown shows at LA’s famed Troubadour, headlining festivals and wowing crowds from Denmark to China, Dustbowl Revival never stopped making their joyful, booty-shaking soul songs and cut-to-heart folk-rock ballads that lift up their transcendent live shows.Come and see how Dustbowl Revival is pushing the boundaries of what American roots music can be on Sunday, July 17th.  

    The next show revealed in the fourth wave of announcements is John Moreland with The Dead Tongues. John Moreland’s earthbound poetry remains potent, but in addition to his world-weary candor, Moreland’s music smolders with gentle wisdom, flashes of wit and joy, and compassion. He will be joined by the mystical folk hue of The Dead Tongues on the Wilcox Main Stage on Wednesday, July 20th

    Last in this wave of announcements is Americana Fest with Alejandro Escovedo and Pokey LaFarge. A celebrated singer and songwriter, Alejandro Escovedo has as eclectic a background and body of work as any rock artist of his generation. Pokey LaFarge has a distinctive style that combines mid-20th-century country, R&B, and pop with exotic flourishes. The two performing in one evening of music along the banks of the Piscataqua will make for a magical night on Sunday, August 21st highlighting the beauty that is Americana.  

    The Festival continues to announce new concerts each week in the River House Restaurant Concert Series. So far the Festival has revealed Josh Ritter (6/16), The Dip with Lady Wray (6/22), The Brothers Comatose (7/6), Fruition (7/8), Deer Tick (7/21), Sierra Hull and Kitchen Dwellers (7/27), Miko Marks with Dwayne Haggins (8/10), Shovels & Rope (8/15), and The War & Treaty (7/25). The Arts Festival will make at least two more waves of announcements which will reveal more exciting acts playing this summer through Labor Day.
