Django Haskins 

When: Sat., June 30, 5 p.m. 2012
Price: Free

As summer jobs go, one can do worse than serenading a hillside of sun-kissed faces from the back of a hay wagon. Lucky for Django Haskins, he's been doing just that every year since the Summer Music Series' inception out in Saxapahaw. For patrons, the afternoon is an opportunity to buy farmers market produce and enjoy music and a picnic. For Haskins, it's a chance to rework songs from his moody pop-noir project, The Old Ceremony, or to dust off material from his years of touring solo. It's also possibly the only venue in the world where the performer gets paid in stuffed swan—that is, a plastic swan stuffed with dollars. —Ashley Melzer
