Join us for the second concert of our newest music series, Tar Heel Troubadours, a celebration of Americana, roots, bluegrass, and traditional music performed by artists from or living and working in North Carolina.

A music performance at the North Carolina Museum of History is unlike any other! You’ll enjoy an intimate experience with an artist in our 300-seat venue. Every seat in the house has a fantastic view, and the sound is exceptional. The evening is complete with merchandise and a bar with a special beer from Fullsteam Brewery plus wine.

Our Tar Heel Troubadours series works to keep music accessible to our community by keeping ticket prices affordable. There are nine concerts in total for this series, including Jim Lauderdale, Fireside Collective, Dawn Landes, Cane Mill Road, Blue Cactus, Paige King Johnson, the Blue Ridge Girls, and more. Visit the museum’s website for up-to-date information and tickets.

Dawn Landes is a North Carolina based singer-songwriter whose music you might have heard if you watch The Good Wife, House, or Gossip Girl. Along with releasing six albums since 2005 (and an EP inspired by yé-yé, ‘60s French pop music), she’s a frequent collaborator with contemporaries, such as Sufjan Stevens, Norah Jones, and composer Nico Muhly. She has appeared with the Boston Pops and the NYC Ballet and on the TED main stage performing songs from her musical ROW about fellow Louisville native Tori Murden McClure’s quest to become the first woman to row across the Atlantic Ocean. Landes’s latest release is a 10th anniversary reissue of her album Bluebird, which Spin described as "refreshing,"   NPR called "compelling," and Blackbook said was "haunting."
