Brooklyn Americana Music Festival: Bands to watch in DUMBO and Red Hook

While Brooklyn isn’t known nationally for its country and roots music scene, it has a thriving Americana community centered around bars, restaurants and clubs like Jalopy, Superfine and Sunny’s in Red Hook.

This weekend, 60 acts will perform at the second annual Brooklyn Americana Music Festival at mostly-free concerts in DUMBO and Red Hook.

Here are six bands to watch.
