Bill Bragin, "Downtown Impresario"


Really happy to see that my friend Bill Bragin got props in the New York Times today.  For those of you who don’t know Bill, he’s put his superb musical tastes to work in service of Festival Productions, Central Park Summerstage, Joe’s Pub, and now at Lincoln Center, where he’ll be directing the Midsummer Night’s Swing and Lincoln Center Out of Doors series.

A friend to a wide range of artists, Bill has been a longtime supporter of the Black Rock Coalition and was an early cheerleader for "Passing Strange."
