Richard Buckner - Part of Merge 25, a Celebration of Merge Records' 25th Anniversary
Singer-songwriter Richard Buckner is an alternative country/roots musician with an alternative rock following. The Guardian (UK) has this to say about Buckner "There are three kinds of American folk artist: those who sit, contented, on a back porch contemplating America's landscape and ways; those for whom its landscape and ways are something to stand against or move boldly through; and those whose America is a shadowy, impressionistic place that moves inside of them. This [latter] is the area that the sombre-voiced Richard Buckner has been exploring since 1994." Shows take place rain or shine on the lawn behind the Duke Gardens Visitor Center. Lawn chairs, picnics & blankets encouraged. Food and drink available for purchase. Dogs are not allowed. Parking at Duke Gardens lots free after 5PM. Restrooms on site. Wheelchair accessible.
