As we come to a close in 2013 with a 6 sold-out run of The
Fab Faux and get ready to ring in the New Year, we look
back on more than 300 incredible nights of music and share
with you some of our memories of the past year and our
favorite 2013 albums.
1. An Evening With Graham Nash and special guest Jackson Browne Renowned
singer-songwriter Graham Nash performed three sold-out shows during a short
break in his 2013 touring schedule with Crosby, Stills & Nash joined by his friend
Jackson Browne. These rare and intimate shows will go down in the history books
for this folk-rock music legend. Next month we proudly welcome David Crosby to
City Winery New York with four sold-out shows and continue to grow our very
special relationship with the members of CSN.
Flanigin rolled into City Winery New York for an unbelievable night of blues and
rock ‘n roll gems. Not only did ZZ Top’s legendary guitarist show up with truly
amazing friends to jam with – he arrived in true ZZ Top style and fashion, with his
ridiculously cool studded leather jacket! Expect this sharp dressed man to return to
City Winery NYC, Chicago and beyond in 2014.
Over the past three years, Citizen Cope has made City Winery his home for intimate
solo & acoustic performances. We anxiously await Cope’s return and can’t help but
wonder what is planned for the New Year and how many shows are in store for
to celebrate the CD Release of David’s most recent album, “Only Slightly Mud.” At
this CD Release party, his soul-driven combinations of bluegrass, blues, folk, jazz,
country western and rock and roll was at a highpoint and we embrace his talent and
welcome his return.

wait for her return to our stages.

down this legendary soul-singer who exudes the highest level of energy and class
each and every time she arrives at City Winery.
time and they shared the City Winery New York stage for one 2013 night only! On
this special night, the artists each performed a short set in support of Ocean Elders,

This rare night of incredible music helped raise awareness and important funds for
Ocean Elders and believe us, it does not get any better than this.
Special Guests performed two surprise all-night shows! Following a surprise late-
night set at City Winery Chicago earlier in the year, Prince was joined at City Winery

crowds were extremely enthusiastic and Sinead was nothing short of brilliant.
Every year Michael Dorf Presents hosts an evening at Carnegie Hall to raise money
for music education programs by honoring the music of a living legend. The 2013

Booker T. Jones with Diane Birch, Maya Rudolph, The Waterboys, The Blind Boys

celebrate the music of Paul Simon on March 30, 2014.
