Craicdown is at the downtown performance green on Saturday night at 6 PM for a free concert. From the Calendar: “Craicdown describes its music as World Acousticana — acoustic roots music with a high-energy, rock inspired flair. Their repertoire includes both songs and instrumental pieces ranging in style from Americana to reggae-sounding vocals, from Celtic influenced jigs and reels to the music of Brazil and Argentina.”

At Wake Med Soccer Park, the Railhawks take on the Indy Eleven. At Booth Amphitheatre, the NC Symphony presents a program called Around the World with the von Trapps. And, at Sertoma Amphitheatre, The Mountain Birch Duo featuring Paul Brown of NPR will be playing a free show.
