We regret to report that Guy Clark has cancelled his appearance at Duke Performances. Mr. Clark is ill and unable to perform; unfortunately, we will not be rescheduling his performance. In addition, we were not able to procure an appropriate replacement, so we are canceling the Friday, October 11 presentation altogether. We apologize for any inconvenience to our patrons.

From his early days in the honky-tonks of his native Texas to his heyday in Nashville, Guy Clark has spent more than fifty years writing and performing unforgettable songs. Timeless gems, Clark’s songs have been covered by Johnny Cash, Vince Gill, and many more; Emmylou Harris calls him “an American poet,” and Bob Dylan has him on his list of favorite songwriters.
Duke Performances is proud to present Guy Clark’s first visit to the area in almost a decade. After a short opening set by acclaimed Chapel Hill duo Mandolin Orange, Clark takes the stage to play and sing his handcrafted songs — songs made, according to Lyle Lovett, with an “extraordinary ability to translate the emotional into the written word.”
