"Fridays on the Front Porch" Returns to the Carolina Inn

CHAPEL HILL - The Carolina Inn begins a new season of its popular end-of-the-workweek celebration called Fridays on the Front Porch Friday, April 27 from 5-7 p.m.

Live bluegrass music creates the perfect atmosphere for kicking back, relaxing and getting a jump on the weekend. The Inn offers its Tiny Vittles menu with full bar service, and plenty of comfortable seating under the shady oaks and magnolias on the Inn's front lawn. There is no cover charge for the event.

Fridays on the Front Porch features the music of some of North Carolina's best bluegrass bands. One of the area's most popular bands, The Big Fat Gap, starts things off on Friday the 27th. The lineup for the rest of the spring and early summer includes the Cadillac Stepbacks, Kicking Grass, Tony Williams, the Black Swamp Bootleggers and new this season - Mick Mixon and his band Franklin Street. Fridays on the Front Porch continues through September 28th. The band schedule is attached.
