Arts & Culture

This area has been known for decades for its thriving creative music scene. Many people travel from around the region – and sometimes around the world – to attend shows at the Cat's Cradle and other venues in Chapel Hill and Carrboro. Less famous, but also doing us proud, are visual artists, dancers, actors, and filmmakers around the Triangle. In fact, Chapel Hill was home to the first Flicker festival, which now takes place in ten cities around the world!

 The Mighty Gospel Inspirations- A cappella Gospel
The Mighty Gospel Inspirations are focused on singing traditional “Quartet style” a cappella gospel rarely heard today.  It is reminiscent of what was performed in the 1940’s and 1950’s. This is an intricate singing style that requires tightly-knit harmony and results in a sound very much like a single voice accompanying a lead singer.  Many long hours of rehearsal are required to make it successful and The Mighty Gospel Inspirations have dedicated themselves to this task.

Puritan Rodeo- Americana / Roots MusicBorrowing heavily from country’s string band tradition, Puritan Rodeo walks with a honky tonk swagger, a bluegrass rollick and a songwriter’s sincerity. Puritan Rodeo plays to the grand traditions of authenticity, simplicity and honesty. The songs are world-weary, but balance the rough-and-tumble life with an unwavering sense of hope and redemption. www.puritanrodeo.com
