Join us for the first show of our Fall 2017 concert series! Music on the Porch is sponsored by the Center for the Study of the American South, and all are welcome.
Born in Chicago to a hippie-turned-born-again mother who only permitted her to listen to country/western music, Kamara Thomas is a singer, songwriter, and dramatist who previously performed with the Ghost Gamblers as well as power trio Earl Greyhound. Her debut album Tularosa: An American Dreamtime explores the Mythic West through a song cycle about a forsaken plot of New Mexico land. Now hailing from Durham, North Carolina, Thomas has been called one of “14 Artists Proving Black Americana Is Real.”
This show is free and open to the public. Free parking is available after 5:00 pm in the Park Place parking lot. Bring a picnic blanket and stay for a while!
