2011 Free Concert Series Continues at American Tobacco This Friday May 27th

ATC logo Steep Canyon Rangers Take Stage in American Tobacco’s FREE Concert Series This Friday, June 10th

Music on the Lawn logo American Tobacco’s FREE summer concert series continues this Friday, June 10th, with The Steep Canyon Rangers. They are quickly becoming one of America’s finest touring bluegrass ensembles and have spent the past two years touring with Steve Martin.

This year American Tobacco has expanded its summer offerings in a family-fun packed On the Lawn Presented by Whole Foods Market. Movies, music and more are free and open to the public.

Steep Canyon Rangers
Steep Canyon Rangers, hailing from Asheville, have played prestigious venues like Carnegie Hall, Merlefest, Bonaroo, the DPAC, and are now returning to the American Tobacco stage.

This year, chowing down ‘on the lawn’ is easier — and tastier — than ever with the introduction of Whole Foods’ Virtual Cafe.  Hungry fans can order a customized picnic by visiting a new Web portal: www.atclawnseries.com.

Come join the fun at American Tobacco for the next FREE concert on Friday, May 27th. The Freight Hoppers will take the water tower stage at 6pm. Check out a sample of these bluegrass boys here.

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.

The Back Porch Music Series is one of several FREE summer events at American Tobacco. Under the umbrella of the On the Lawn Presented by Whole Foods Market line-up, the Back Porch Music Series joins Movies on the Lawn; Pops for Pops on Father’s Day; and Red, White, Blues & Bluegrass on July 4th.
