"This rootsy North Carolinian may be the most buzzed-about new songwriter in folkdom," wrote The Boston Globe about Carrboro's Jonathan Byrd. "He displays John Prine's gift for stark little songs that tell big, complex stories, Guy Clark's lean melodicism, Lyle Lovett's wry mischief, and Bill Morrissey's knack for the revealing image." No Depression declared that, "If there was one iota of justice in this world, Jonathan Byrd would be a platinum-selling, internationally acknowledged household name." Backed by his top-notch band the Pickup Cowboys, Byrd calls on the country, folk, and ballad traditions to craft songs packed with humor and raw emotion.

Duke Gardens' summer outdoor music series are back! The shows take place in the lawn behind the Visitor's Center—we highly encourage bringing lawn chairs, picnics and blankets! But if you're in a pinch and don't have time to shop, they've got you covered—food and beverages, including beer and wine, will be available for purchase during the performances. The lawn will open 30 minutes prior to the start of show so you can find the best patch of grass to, and parking is free after 5p.

Tickets and details on the shows available here. Tickets are $10, $5 for Duke students and employees.
