Come out to ConvergeNC to listen to some sweet Southern tunes from two bands that represent the diversity and dynamism fueling Southern musicians.

By Kelsey Van
ConvergeNC Southern Music Festival first took place on April 6th, 2013 and has grown into an annual event celebrating the music of the American South. In the past, they've featured musicians ranging from Piedmont roots bluesmen to area folk and country groups to local hip hop artists and more. Started by UNC students, and co-sponsored by the Town of Chapel Hill's Parks and Recreation department (yep, our own Leslie Knopes and Ron Swansons) and Water in Our World, a campus theme making an effort to start a conversation about water in Chapel Hill.

ConvergeNC aims to keep things fun, free and focused on remarkable music made in or inspired by the American South. This year The Dead Tongues, a local nine-piece supergroup, and the The Suffers, a ten-piece Gulf Coast soul ensemble built on powerhouse rhythm and horn sections and show-stopping vocal stylings of front woman Kam Franklin.
