First Fridays at the Gregg

The Museum is open until 7pm each First Friday. Beginning in the Fall of 2019, the Gregg has begun offering live performances.

Given the many ensembles and individual performers on campus and in our community, we have hosted groups from all aspects of the NC State community – students, faculty, and staff – as well as interested community members.

We invite you to join us on First Fridays to enjoy these performers, and hope this will become a tradition at the Gregg Museum. For information about performing at the Gregg Museum, please contact Evelyn McCauley.

You can also find a Google form here to provide information about your group.

March 6 – Irish Sessions

The Irish Session at NC State is a weekly gathering of musicians who play traditional tunes from Ireland, Scotland, and Cape Breton, Canada. The session is open to all NC State University students, faculty, and staff, as well as local community members. Typical session instruments include the fiddle, flute, tin whistle, concertina, button accordion, mandolin, guitar, bouzouki, and bodhran. The repertoire consists largely of Irish dance music—reels, jigs, slip jigs, hornpipes, polkas, waltzes, barn dances—as well as slow airs.

April 3 – Wolfpack Pickers

The Wolfpack Pickers Jam is open to bluegrass musicians of all skill levels who are affiliated with NC State. The standard bluegrass instruments (guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, dobro, and fiddle) are all welcome. With the exception of bass players who play a U-bass or electric stick bass, all instruments should be acoustic (un-amplified).

The Jam is open to the following members of the NC State University and surrounding community:

  • Current students
  • Current employees
  • Retired faculty and staff
  • Alumni
  • Wolfpack parents, friends, fans, and supporters from the surrounding community
May 1 – Justin Kuhn, Interactive Soundscapes. Hear a Sample.

Self-described as a slow, warping, churning, grinding mass, Justin has a wealth of sounds and songs to share through various controllers, synthesizers, and effect machines.  He will make any space sparkle with sound.
