With the winter we had this year, it's almost hard to believe that just six weeks from now we'll be spreading a blanket on the lawn at Duke Gardens to enjoy another summer full of great music. It should be no secret by now that the folks at Duke Performances excel at pulling together a fantastic roster of artists to fill the Gardens with their sounds, and this year is no different.
The series will kick off on Wednesday, May 26, with Raleigh-based Annuals and continue for 10 weeks including nights with Camera Obscura, Lonnie Walker, Kingsbury Manx, Max Indian and more.
All shows are on Wednesdays and start at 7 p.m. Tickets go on sale today, April 15, at 10 a.m. online and are $10, $5 for Duke students/employees except where noted. All shows are free for children 12 and under.
