Week 3 of Durham Central Park’s new concert series: Skylar Gudasz (full band!) with Special Guest Kamara Thomas Music. Skylar Gudasz moved to Durham from small town Virginia. Kamara Thomas is a Durham-by-way-of-Brooklyn transplant. “Gudasz’s antecedents are no mystery. She summons Joni Mitchell throughout Oleander, particularly in the twisted acoustic romp of the ebullient “Just Friends” and the Blue-like piano fantasy of “About Great Men.” You can trace the lessons of Laurel Canyon and Crosby, Stills & Nash, The Jayhawks and perhaps even The Shins” –Grayson Currin, IndyWeek.www.skylargudasz.com

Kamara Thomas is a songwriter, storyteller, and mythology fanatic based in Durham, NC. In 2016 she ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the recording of her upcoming debut album, TULAROSA: AN AMERICAN DREAMTIME, a collection of character narratives describing the complications of the elusive American Dream. For over a decade Kamara recorded and toured internationally as the singer-bassist in the NYC rock band Earl Greyhound, and fronted Americana group The Ghost Gamblers.
“As a singer/songwriter/sometimes playwright, Kamara has found her place here” –Durham Magazine. www.kamarathomas.com

Food truck and craft beer vendors to be announced.
