Local Americana Venues


I often get asked by artists about the venues in the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area that are friendly to Americana and roots music. Here’s some of the local opportunities that I’m aware of. This is not intended to be a complete list of all the venues in our area. It’s just the ones I’m aware of that book Americana acts on a semi-regular basis.  If you know of any opportunities that should be added to this list, please contact director@taprootradio.com.
