As we bid summer adieu, join Science Friday at the North Carolina Museum of Art for an event that celebrates the diverse, natural landscapes and impactful science happening from the coastline to the forested hills. We’ll watch three films produced by Science Friday in North Carolina and talk with the scientists featured on screen, who will discuss some of science’s biggest questions: How do we adapt as the climate changes? How are we alike the other animals on our plants? How can we help preserve the unique landscapes around the world?

On Thursday September 12 WUNC Music presents HC McEntire, Alice Gerrard, John Howie Jr, and Tatiana Hargreaves previewing Ken Burns’ new documentary series "Country Music" at Cat’s Cradle Main Room located at 300 East Main St, Carrboro, NC.

The event is free. Doors open at 6 p.m. with the 30-minute preview starting at 7 p.m. followed by a songwriters in-the-round session.
