Whether sharing stages with acoustic music royalty, crisscrossing the nation playing as a solo artist or performing high-energy, jaw-dropping sets at festivals, the reaction to Billy Strings tends to come in two varieties: “Who is this guy?” and “That kid can play!” In 2016, he earned the International Bluegrass Music Association's Instrumentalist of the Year Momentum Award for his guitar playing, and that's just one of many accolades this young musician has earned.

Opening band: Whiskey Shivers

Pickers, rockers, groovers and all cool cats are invited to the return of American Tobacco's legendary Back Porch Music on the Lawn concert series, May 11 - September 14. The eight free Thursday evening concerts will once again take place on the historic campus’ interior quad. The popular series is a joint production of the American Tobacco Campus and WUNC-FM 91.5.

American Tobacco’s beloved restaurants will be open and preparing quick grab items for concertgoers to enjoy picnic style as they take in the shows. This year, fans can sample new neighbors Wedgie’s sandwich shop and The Bullpen, featuring Heavenly Buffaloes wings.

Beer and wine are available for purchase at the concerts. Picnics, coolers and well-behaved dogs are welcome. Please no glass.
