Songs From the Circle 2 with Danny Gotham, Jim Watson, Jeff Hart, Lanelle Davis, Janet Place, Julie Elkins, Mike Babyak, Bobb Head, Lindsey Tims, Hank Smith, Jan Johansson, Jim Roberts

When: Fri., June 28, 8 p.m. 2013

A baker's dozen of acoustic players from the local country/folk community gather for the second straight year to celebrate the landmark 1972 album Will the Circle Be Unbroken, a collaborative project that sought to bring formative pickers such as Jimmy Martin and Maybelle Carter to the attention of contemporary country and rock fans. (The crossover group Nitty Gritty Dirt Band served as the album's ringleader.) At the helm here is guitarist Danny Gotham, who organized last year's show at the Community Church of Chapel Hill; this year it moves to the ArtsCenter, and the plan is for it to become an annual event. For this second show, they'll expand a bit from the repertoire of the original Circle album, which seems appropriate given that the album itself spawned sprawling sequels in 1989 and 2002. —Peter Blackstock
