Music on the Porch: Triangle/Triad Singer/Songwriter Showcase

 —  —

The Center for the Study of the American South, 410 E Franklin St, , Chapel Hill, NC

Where in North Carolina do the best singers and songwriters call home? On April 11th, join us on the porch for a singer/songwriter showdown between North Carolina’s neighboring tri-city regions. Here to show us how they do it in the Triad will be Sam Frazier and Laurelyn Dossett. Representing the Triangle will be Jon Shain, FJ Ventre, and Rissi Palmer.

Sam Frazier's music blends emotional and musical complexity with the heart of a rock-n-roller. Originally from Greensboro, he has opened for Eric Church, The Neville Brothers, and Craig Morgan. Laurelyn Dossett tells regional stories through songs she writes from her home in the Piedmont and has collaborated with Triad Stage to produce six musical productions. Rissi Palmer is a Durham-based “Southern Soul” musician whose 2007 debut single “Country Girl” made her the first African-American woman to chart a country song since 1987. Jon Shain and FJ Ventre blend improvised Piedmont blues with bluegrass, swing, and ragtime.

This event is free and open to the public, and parking is free after 5:00 pm in the Park Place parking lot. The Center is also located along free Chapel Hill Transit bus routes A, CL, D, F, NU, and U. Bring a picnic blanket and stay for a while!
