Sponsored in part by PineCone. 

Mile Twelve is a fresh, hard driving young band beautifully walking the line between original and traditional bluegrass with their infectious groove and intricate melodies.

The Honey Dewdrops

Saturday, June 11 | 6 p.m. | Free
Sponsored in part by PineCone. 

Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish share more than most couples. As the Honey Dewdrops, they share stages, one mic and a hunger to pay attention to what endures. With tight harmonies and a musical ensemble that includes clawhammer banjo, mandolin and guitars, the effect is to leave listeners with only what matters: the heart of the song and clarity over ornamentation.

Triangle Brass Band 

Friday, June 17 | 7 p.m. | Free

If you have not experienced us, come try us out! Join the Triangle Brass Band for "Picture This!" The area’s premier adult British-style brass band will perform a program of music from the movies. You are guaranteed to hear something you love! 

The Harris Brothers

Saturday, July 9 | 6 p.m. | Free
Sponsored in part by PineCone.

The Harris Brothers, a real brother duo, started playing string instruments and singing as children. Born and raised in Western North Carolina, the Harris Brothers’ intuitive nature of their interaction can only be achieved via their relationship. Reggie sings and plays guitar, banjo, and a kick-drum suitcase for percussion; Ryan sings and plays the bass. A typical live show effortlessly shifts from original tunes to their own arrangements of songs.

Charm City Junction

Saturday, August 13 | 6 p.m. | Free

Sponsored in part by PineCone. 

From dance-inducing old-time rhythms and foot stomping Irish melodies, to hard-driving Bluegrass, Charm City Junction creates a fresh soundscape that keeps listeners on the edge of their seats. The band is comprised of four talented and promising acoustic musicians: Patrick McAvinue on fiddle, Brad Kolodner on clawhammer banjo, Sean McComiskey on button accordion and Alex Lacquement on upright bass.

Cary Town Band
Friday, September 16 | 7:30 p.m. | Free
News Flash!  There's a full moon that Friday night!  And the moon rising at 7:28 p.m. will be greeted by all manner of moon-struck music at the Sertoma Amphitheatre as the band recalls all the weird things that are said to happen on a full moon - more babies born, springtides, humans transmogrify into vampires, crime increases, and lunacy pervails.  Really?  Well, those are the myths and there's music to explore every one, even from a composer named Moon.  Be sure to be there with is as we sit outdoors, absorb the music - and actually watch the Full Moon Rising
