Concert on the Green – Dark Water Rising
July 27, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Based out of southeastern North Carolina, Dark Water Rising has been entertaining crowds across the state since 2008. The bands Native roots provide the framework of the bands sound, which they describe as “rocky soul.” The band attributes their style of playing and singing to a combination of influences, which range from attending Sunday morning worship services to absorbing the diverse styles and tones of artists like Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, the BeeGees, and Lynrd Skynard. DWR explores various themes of life — love, heartbreak, sacrifice, celebration, despair, pain — all while expressing and evoking sincere emotion on issues affecting contemporary Native American communities. They have released two albums to date, one in 2010 and one in 2013. Learn more on their website or on Facebook.
“Native Americans who piece together Southern rock full of gospel harmonies, hip-hop inflections and Motown soul with a journeyman work ethic. With bold songwriting and bewitching arrangements, DWR breaks rules effortlessly.”– Sylvia Pfeiffenberger, “Indy Week”
