Music on the Lawn Continues 2011 Run

Music on the Lawn logo American Tobacco’s FREE summer concert series continues this Friday, September 9th, with The Shady Grove Band. One of the Triangle’s oldest and best known bluegrass bands, the Shady Grove Band will keep the free music going at the outdoor venue.

The band is known for their 4-part gospel harmonies and lightning fast instrumental breaks.

Listen to a sneak peak here.

The Shady Grove Band
One of the Triangle’s best loved bluegrass bands, The Shady Grove Band, will take the stage for a free concert at American Tobacco on Friday, Sept 9th.

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.

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:

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 on the line-up. The summer has already brought Pops for Pops on Father’s Day and Red, White, Blues & Bluegrass on July 4th.

Check out for details on all the free fun.
