Friday Night Live Concert Series

Friday Night Live

Live art. Live music. Good people.

Friday Night Live is a monthly event that brings together live music and live art. Each event features a live music performance from a local artist. During the performance, featured artists create visual art inspired by and responding to the music. The work is auctioned off by a silent auction taking place throughout the evening. Join us for the evening as we explore the relationship between visual art and music in our beautiful spacious Duke Gallery set up café style or on our side lawn (bring you own chairs or blankets)

Friday Night Live Spring Season!

These events are BYOB and BAYF (bring all your friends).  You are encouraged to bring your own tasty morsels to enjoy during the concert. See our latest live music lineup below, and don’t hesitate to call with any questions or artist opportunities.

For safety, please make every effort to purchase tickets in advance. Tickets may be purchased online or by calling the CAC office. Attendance is limited. Credit cards will not be accepted at the door if concert is held outside. If you are paying cash at the door please bring exact change.

For outdoor concerts it is lawn seating: bring your own blanket or chairs. Restrooms will be available in the building. Please note that restroom access requires the use of stairs at the front entrance of the building. For concerts held indoors, seating will be set up in the gallery café style.

Bakithi Kumalo and the South African Allstars

Bakithi kumalo is a world renowned bass player, originally from Johannesburg, South Africa. Kumalo worked as a session musician in South Africa during the 1970s and early 1980s, and joined Paul Simon’s band during the recording sessions of the pop star’s landmark Graceland album in 1985. He traveled with Simon to New York to finish the sessions, and after the accompanying concert tour spent several years commuting between Soweto and New York city before permanently settling in the united states.

Kumalo has toured regularly with Paul Simon since then. He has also released several solo records, and continued to perform as a session and touring musician. In addition to touring with Simon, he’s also recorded and/or toured with Gloria Estefan, Derrick Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, Miriam Makeba, Grover Washington Jr., Angelique Kidjo, Joan Baez, Chaka Khan, the Grateful Dead, Herbie Hancock, and many others.
