Duke Arts Presents

Nick Sanborn
Lend Me Your Voice

Friday, November 1, 2013 | 8:00 pm

Nelson Music Room

Durham is becoming a magnet for great musicians from all over, and Wisconsin native Nick Sanborn is one of the busiest of those transplants. It seems like Sanborn plays with every band in town: from Megafaun to The Love Language to Sylvan Esso — not to mention Milwaukee stalwarts Decibully and Collections of Colonies of Bees.

For two nights, Sanborn will have the rare chance to gather all these exceptional musicians together in one place. One by one, he will bring these collaborators and friends on stage, building a once-in-a-lifetime band. With the audience arranged in the round in the intimate space of Nelson Music Room, Sanborn will trace the strands that make up a thriving, cross-country musical community.
