With Kate VanVorst
Kate is passionate about live music and is intimately involved with Raleigh’s local scene. Having worked with numerous music institutions throughout the Triangle, she has become connected with many local bands, venues and with the select network of champions that fuel Raleigh’s fledgling independent music scene. Like many in this eclectic community, Kate wants to expand access to and investment in local artists and businesses in a way that will put Raleigh on the map as a music destination. The walkabout is designed to give customers an understanding of the city’s current offerings, as well as a glimpse at some behind-the-scenes action and information.
Kate, possibly joined by a friend, will meet you in front of CAM Raleigh at 7:30pm and will take you on a walkabout through downtown Raleigh until approximately 9:00pm. This experience is preferable on nights when there are various local bands playing in downtown Raleigh - usually on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Kate will lead the group in and out of small local music venues, introducing you to artists and music supporters you may meet along the way. The walkabout will be tailored according to the music events scheduled that night, and according to the weather and your preferences. The walkabouts will end at 9:00pm at a concert - if possible, a free cover event. Please dress appropriately for the weather and to enjoy a night of fun and active socializing.
