Darren Hanlon grew up in a small town in Queensland, Australia with American legends like Kenny Rogers playing on the turntable.

His early musical education, a month in the Australian desert, and an Amtrak trip through the American South informed the kind of artist he is today; a roots music singer-songwriter with a passion for lyrical and narrative tracks. 

Host Frank Stasio talks with Hanlon about his life and career, and Hanlon plays live. Hanlon opens tonight's Back Porch Music on the Lawn concert at 6 p.m. in Durham.
