The Josh Daniel / Mark Schimick Project – OPENER
Formed in early 2014, The Josh Daniel/Mark Schimick Project is a fiery string band blending bluegrass, soul, reggae and rock n' roll into a style uniquely their own. Respecting their Appalachian roots, these passionate multi-instrumentalists have a way of blending their harmonies and intricate string work in to something that appeals to a wide variety of listeners. "A little of everything finds its way into their sound." – Jim Lauderdale
There's on better setting than the Back Porch Music concert series in Durham's American Tobacco Campus. Set beneath the Lucky Strike water tower and surrounded by renovated tobacco warehouses, bluegrass and jazz acts from around the state (and even the country) belt upbeat music to seam-busting crowds from around the Triangle. The setting is truly spectacular, as the beauty of American Tobacco campus is truly unique to the entire Triangle.
Over the course of the summer, eight free, three-hour outdoor concerts will be held in this wildly popular and beautiful venue. Enjoy marque, family-friendly opening and headline bands as well as food and drink vendors. Before and after the series you'll be surrounded by shops and nearby bars, so pop in and grab whatever you need. If you find yourself needing to leave the American Tobacco campus afterwards, there are nearby bars and other downtown hotspots only a few blocks away.
