Gardens are places where roots thrive, and the Duke Performances Music in the Gardens series has in recent years emphasized musical acts with N.C. roots and rootsy influences. The upcoming iteration of the series, which runs Wednesday evenings at seven p.m. from June through July at Sarah P. Duke Gardens, stays true to the roots emphasis, although not entirely.

The biggest veer from tradition is series opener Flock of Dimes, the solo project of Jenn Wasner, formerly of Wye Oak, whose layered, mostly keyboard-driven songs, lustrous voice, and full-band backing should make for an intoxicating beginning. From there, the June offerings range from the lived-in soul-blues of Robert Finley to the sometimes rocking, sometimes ruminative alt-country of Robbie Fulks to the indie folk-country amalgam of Loamlands. In July, the series heads into country and Americana territory, with a culminating show by ace singer-songwriter Caleb Caudle.

Tickets go on sale Tuesday, May 2. They run $5 for Duke students and employees, and $10 for the general public. Admission is free for those twelve and under.

Here is the complete list of acts:

June 7: Flock of Dimes
June 14: Robert Finley
June 21: Robbie Fulks
June 28: Loamlands
July 5: Birds of Chicago
July 12: Kelsey Waldon
July 19: River Whyless
July 26: Caleb Caudle
