Old School R&B at ATC

Did you know that Clyde McPhatter of the Drifters hailed from Durham? 

Can you imagine James Brown, the Godfather of Soul, performing at the Durham Athletic 1966...and you paid $4.50 to sit in the infield!?! 

These R&B tidbits come from an exhibit in American Tobacco's Crowe Building gallery entitled Soul Souvenirsextended through the end of April. It features Durham concert posters and vinyl memorabilia from the 1960s and 70s. 

If you are coming to see the Bulls on Thursday or Friday, check it out. It's just a few steps across the street from the ballpark. Highly recommended for Boomer reminiscing.

More info from the American Tobacco Historic District website.
