Our Roots and Leaves Concert Series in Chapel Hill has concluded, and, despite one performance canceled by a sudden thunderstorm, it was a wonderful month of shows! The program, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Strowd Rose Foundation, with support from Market Street at Southern Village, Aloft Hotel of Chapel Hill and the Carolina Brewery Van, explored the music local to the Triangle. Over 1000 people were reached by Blues, String-Band, Gospel and Native music during the series. Despite the incredible 107 degree heat last week we still had a great show with Lakota John and Kin, the Pura Fé Trio and surprise guest Charlie Lowry of Dark Water Rising.
We hope to continue the program next year, but for the next little while we’re going to stay indoors in the A/C!
