NEW YORK (AP) — Jack Johnson and Train are among the headliners in the second season of public television’s newly renamed performance show “Front and Center.”

The series, known last year as “Front Row Center,” will have nine one-hour musical performances starting in September. The show announced Wednesday that songwriter Johnson will be the first performer. In the second show, Train performs their latest album in its entirety. “Front and Center” tapes its shows at intimate performance halls in New York City.

Other guests on the second season include Buddy Guy, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the Rides, featuring Stephen Stills. Former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde will perform with the Les Paul Trio.

The show airs at different times on PBS stations across the country.
