Music On the Lawn - Steep Canyon Rangers - Durham

Spring has Sprung and it's time for Music on the Lawn at American Tobacco Campus! These are free outdoor shows in downtown Durham. 

It is highly recommended to bring your camping/beach style chair or a blanket (it's called movies on the lawn for a reason). smile

The music starts at about 6pm, but come when you can after work, bring your own veg picnic dinner and drinks or buy something there.

There is usually free parking very near the event (garage above and below ATC and also at Main and Corcoran), but if there is a ballgame or DPAC event that night, parking may be $2-4.

The past year has taken the Steep Canyon Rangers to new heights. In March 2011, the band released its first collaborative record with Steve Martin, ”Rare Bird Alert” which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Bluegrass Chart and at #43 on the Billboard Top 200. In 2010, the latest solo record from Steep Canyon Rangers, ”Deep In The Shade”, remained in the Bluegrass Top 10 on Billboard for 18 weeks. While headlining festivals like MerleFest and Bonnaroo alongside Steve Martin for part each year, the Rangers continue to perform alone as a quintet on stages such as Telluride, RockyGrass, and ”A Prairie Home Companion” with Garrison Keillor. Recent television appearances by Steve Martin with Steep Canyon Rangers include ”Late Night With David Letterman”, ”The Colbert Report” & ”Austin City Limits.”

With smooth vocals, smart songwriting, ferocious instrumentals and jaw-dropping harmony, the Rangers are bringing Bluegrass to music lovers across the USA and around the world. Steep Canyon Rangers are: Mike Guggino (mandolin/vocals), Charles Humphrey III(bass/vocals), Woody Platt (guitar/lead vocals), Nicky Sanders (fiddle/vocals), and Graham Sharp (banjo/vocals).

    I just found out there's both a ballgame and a DPAC event at ATC tonight, so arriving early would be a good idea if you want to get a decent parking space.

    email has been sent out to those currently RSVPd on how to find the group. I will be in a blue chair with a green hat and orange shirt - I'll try to be center stage about 1/3 to 1/2 way back.

    I've removed the troll! I actually am surprised this kind of thing doesn't happen more often.
