Singer-songwriter Richard Buckner is an alternative country/roots musician with an alternative rock following. The Guardian (UK) has this to say about Buckner "There are three kinds of American folk artist: those who sit, contented, on a back porch contemplating America’s landscape and ways; those for whom its landscape and ways are something to stand against or move boldly through; and those whose America is a shadowy, impressionistic place that moves inside of them. This [latter] is the area that the sombre-voiced Richard Buckner has been exploring since 1994."

**Music in the Gardens presentations are excluded from Pick-Four & Age-30-&-Under discounts.**

Duke Performances’ Music in the Gardens is made possible, in part, with support from Duke Continuing Studies, Duke Summer Session, the Sarah P. Duke Gardens & Merge Records.
