The fall schedule for the Levitt Shell Concert Series is out and it looks like the same enticing blend American roots and international music the Shell has graced the city with in its first two seasons. And it's free!

The fall season will run from September 3rd through October 4th, with five concerts each weekend from Thursday through Sunday.

Among the highlights:

September 11th: Local jazz/blues/soul/pop organ man Charlie Wood will celebrate the release of his latest album, Flutter and Wow, in which he mixes original songs with covers from such songwriters as Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, and Paul Simon.

September 19th: Farmer Jason, which is the musical alter ego of Jason Ringenberg, the former leader of ’80s alt-country pioneers Jason & the Scorchers, will perform a kids' concert.

September 25th: Sacred steel ensemble The Lee Boys will sanctify the Shell with their searing blend of blues and gospel.

October 1st: Grammy-nominated Canadian group The Duhks bring their unique blend of bluegrass, rock, and roots jazz to the stage.
