Music on the Lawn logo Back Porch Music on the Lawn kicked off in the American Tobacco Amphitheater on Friday, April 30, 2010, with Chatham County Line. The estimated crowd on hand was 1,200 to 1,500 and the weather was perfect!

Thanks to FOX 50 Non-Traditional Revenue Manager Sylvia Lanier, the series now has a presenting sponsor with Whole Foods Market.  This new partnership allows the series the ability to have on-air television presence to promote the concerts working in conjunction with the radio promotions from WUNC Radio.

The Venue
The American Tobacco Campus is arguably one of the top venues in the Triangle for enjoying an outdoor concert in an intimate and family-friendly atmosphere. Ample parking and five fine eateries surround the lawn: Cuban Revolution, Tyler’s Taproom, Mellow Mushroom and Saladelia.

Kids are welcome on the lawn where families can enjoy the Ole Bull River that runs through the middle of the campus. As a courtesy to your neighbors, no dogs or coolers please.
