When: Thu., Oct. 30, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $10-$15
On a recent sunny autumn afternoon, I drove to Duke Gardens—not to see the plants but to catch another Durham treasure, folk and bluegrass icon Alice Gerrard. Alongside Hiss Golden Messenger's Mike Taylor, she played "Strange Land," the second track from her new Taylor-produced LP, Follow the Music, a beautiful record drawn perfectly from pools of melancholy and reflection. The way Gerrard's voice spilled across the dirt path and late-blooming flowers of the Discovery Garden gave me chills, powerful as it was to be in the presence of someone so crucial to a genre in such an intimate setting. Taylor again joins Gerrard for this CD release party and on Saturday at Durham's Dear Hearts, where she'll help celebrate the first anniversary of the vintage boutique. 8 p.m., $10–$15, 300 E. Main St., 919-929-2787, —Allison Hussey
