Jars Of Clay

Sunday, August 3, 2014
Roanoke Island Festival Park
n 2012, the Jars celebrated their 18th year together. They'd written over 100 songs, made 10 studio records, & toured internationally. Although the band has had its share of successes, including three GRAMMYs for Much Afraid (1997), If I Left the Zoo (1999) and The Eleventh Hour (2002), they began to ask themselves what comes next. For the answer, they decided to look inward and head inland. Lead singer Dan Haseltine explains: "In Homer's Odyssey, when Odysseus returns to land after a life on the sea, he's told to take his oar and walk inland until he finds someone who doesn't know what an oar is. For us, the story suggested moving from a comfortable place into unexplored territory. We decided to turn away from everything we'd done before and find our own voice as a band. Tonight's stop in Manteo is part of their 20th Anniversary Tour and they will be playing all of their hits.

Add to FavoritesView Website PNC Presents: Marty Stuart & The Fabulous Superlatives

Sunday, August 17, 2014
Roanoke Island Festival Park
Marty Stuart is a five time GRAMMY-winner, platinum recording artist, Grand Ole Opry star, country music archivist, Southern culture historian, photographer, musician, songwriter & country music fan. Since starting out singing gospel as a child, Stuart, 54, has spent over four decades celebrating American roots music. His teenage years with bluegrass legend Lester Flatt in the '70s were followed by a long stint in the Johnny Cash band. The turn of the century saw Stuart making deeply felt records paying homage to his love of gospel and as always, his core —rockin' hillbilly music. His latest musical oeuvre is ably supported by the coolest cats in Nashville - his backing band, The Fabulous Superlatives. Stuart's zest for country music is also seen on RFD-TV's "The Marty Stuart Show", a musical variety show. So, what's next? Peter North cites, "Marty Stuart seems wrapped in his destiny at this point in time. He has evolved into one of the most important music visionaries in America."
