About us

Forty Acres was formed as a non-profit tax-exempt organization with the purpose of promoting roots music in the Triangle (Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill) area of North Carolina. We regularly sponsor house concerts featuring local and regional musicians to give fans of roots music a unique listening experience that you just cannot find in the local club scene. We are also in the early stages of sponsoring music/dance events.

Two of the venues that we regularly use are private homes with large living rooms in the Chapel Hill vicinity; the third is a community clubhouse. You may click here for pictures of and directions to some of our venues.

As of November 2007 the board of directors of Forty Acres consists of:
