After the first round of Duke Performances events for the 2010-11 season were revealed a few weeks ago, we were already very impressed. Now there's even more good shows to share with you that the full schedule has been released.
First, New York duo The Books will bring their the new album The Way Out to the intimate Shaefer Lab Theater for two shows (at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.) on Friday, Oct. 1.
Then, The American Beauty Project will perform at Page Auditorium on Friday, Oct. 15. The collective, which includes Ollabelle, Jim Lauderdale, David Mansfield, Catherine Russell and Aoife O’Donovan, will perform songs from The Grateful Dead's classic albums American Beauty and Workingman's Dead.
Grammy-winning bluegrass band The Del McCoury Band and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band will grace the stage at Page Auditorium on Saturday, Oct. 30. This will undeniably be a great evening of music.
The venerable Allen Toussaint will play Reynold Industries Theater on Sunday, Nov. 7, with special guests Nicholas Payton and the Joe Krown Trio.
Certainly, one of the most exciting additions the schedule is songwriter Will Oldham, better known as Bonnie "Prince" Billy. He will play the Reynolds Industries Theater on Friday, Dec. 3 with The Cairo Gang, with whom he recorded his latest album, Wonder Show of the World.
The Bang on a Can All-Stars, with special guest Glenn Kotche of Wilco, will make their regular stop in the Triangle at the Reynold Industries Theater on Friday, Jan. 28.
