Music on the Porch: Mipso!

**Due to a forecast of inclement weather, this event will be held in the large auditorium of the Genome Science Building, room G-100.** Free parking will be available after 5:00 pm in the Bell Tower Parking Deck.**  _mg_0639

Join us for a night of live music and conversation with UNC’s very own Mipso! These self-described “renegade traditionalists” are doing their part to take three-part harmony and Appalachian influences into new territory. Formed in Chapel Hill in 2010 and fresh off their 5,000-mile “Tour of Everywhere,” the band features Jacob Sharp (mandolin), Wood Robinson (bass), Joseph Terrell (guitar), and Libby Rodenbough (violin). You can sample some tunes from their 2013 album “Dark Holler Pop” on their website, on Bandcamp, or at ReverbNation.

This show is free and open to the public. Bring a picnic blanket and stay for a while!
