Critics' Picks: Nicole Atkins at South Park Amphitheater

by

[POP/SOUL] + FRI., JUNE 16

If you listen carefully to Nicole Atkins’ music, you can hear the different layers of influence. On songs like “Goodnight Rhonda Lee,” from her new album of the same name, there are hints of Loretta Lynn. On her cover of “Bye Bye Blackbird,” there’s a clear reference to John Coltrane. Other tunes, like “Listen Up,” would fit comfortably on the same bill as Sara Bareilles. Joining Atkins tonight at the free Allegheny County Summer Concert Series at South Park Amphitheater is upbeat and country-tinged Bindley Hardware Co. HL 7:30 p.m. 3778 Buffalo Drive, South Park Township. 412-835-5710 or alleghenycounty.us/special-events/summer-concert-series
