Red Dirt NC: Weekend Watch, March 23-25

Two larger shows highlight the first weekend of spring in the central and eastern portions of the state…

Spring officially started this week although for much of the North Carolina mountains it was welcomed in with snow showers and bitter cold temperatures. Down east things have been a little warmer although the rain continues this weekend.

Hopefully, it won’t keep fans away from the Greenfield Lake Amphitheater where a sold out show awaits. Our other featured show takes place back inland toward the center of the state in Winston-Salem and will be inside.

Get out and enjoy some live music around the state!

FRIDAY – MARCH 23, 2018

No shows listed.

SATURDAY – MARCH 24, 2018

Drive-By Truckers – Greenfield Lake Amphitheater, Wilmington

Drive-By Truckers have always been outspoken, telling a distinctly American story via craft, character, and concept, all backed by sonic ambition and social conscience. Founded in 1996 by singer/songwriter/guitarists Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood, the band have long held a progressive fire in their belly but with AMERICAN BAND, they have made the most explicitly political album in their extraordinary canon. A powerful and legitimately provocative work, hard edged and finely honed, the album is the sound of a truly American Band – a Southern American band – speaking on matters that matter.

Miranda Lambert – Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Winston-Salem

The Living Like Hippies Tour makes a stop in North Carolina with special guests Jon Pardi and Charlie Worsham

SUNDAY – MARCH 25 2018

No shows listed.

Lambert was recently featured as the fourth figure atop the Mount Rushmore of independent country and roots music alongside Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson and Chris Stapleton. Her commitment to the independent scene is undeniable having recently announced the Turnpike Troubadours, Steel Woods, Natalie Hemby and Tenille Townes will be joining her next tour with Little Big Town, and already having other artists like Sunny Sweeney join her on stage.

Enjoy the weekend, take advantage and keep spreading the love, one song at a time…
