A wealth of musical talent — covering folk, pop, country, hip-hop, mariachi and more — will be performing live in Park City at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival as part of the 21st annual Sundance ASCAP Music Cafe.
The ASCAP lineup, announced Monday, includes some Grammy winners, among them Argentine singer-songwriter Claudia Brant, rapper Everlast (“What It’s Like”), folksinger Patty Griffin and country singer-songwriter Lee Ann Womack (“I Hope You Dance”).
Meanwhile, performing-rights organization BMI has announced that an all-female lineup will play its Snowball music showcase.
The Snowball’s headliner is yet to be announced. Opening acts include folk-pop performer Neyla Pekarek, formerly the cellist for The Lumineers; pop singer Hailey Knox; and Brooklyn-based rock singer-songwriter Tamar-kali. The show is set for 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 29, at The Shop, 1167 Woodside Ave., Park City, near the Park City Library Center. It is open to credentialed festivalgoers.
The ASCAP Cafe offers a variety of acoustic and near-acoustic performances, starting at 2 p.m. each day from Friday, Jan. 25, to Friday, Feb. 1. It is free to credentialed festivalgoers.
The cafe will see the return of the ACM & Bluebird Cafe Songwriters Series, a showcase of country singer-songwriters that will include Womack, Deana Carter, Carlton Anderson and Jacob Davis. Those sessions are set for Wednesday and Thursday, Jan. 30 and 31.
On Wednesday, Jan. 30, Brazilian singer-musician Seu Jorge — famous for his David Bowie covers on the soundtrack of Wes Anderson’s “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou” — will team with countryman Jaques Morelenbaum to perform music from the movie “Abe,” which appears in Sundance’s Kids section.
