Durham, North Carolina–The Eno River Association (ERA) will present OneEno – EnoFest 2020, a live broadcast originating from the historic Carolina Theatre in downtown Durham on Friday, July 3, 2020, from 8 pm – 11 pm and rebroadcasting Saturday, July 4th at 8 pm.

The OneEno event will feature live and recorded musical performances, a virtual crafts market, documentary footage about local foodways, profiles of local artists and venues, environmental education, and of course, the Eno River.
Host Joe Newberry will emcee the evening’s entertainment which will feature musical performances by the Hamiltones, Caique Vidal & Batuque, Jim Watson, Indigo de Souza, Jon Shain & Mark Simonsen (Flying Mice), Sonny Miles, and Dwight Haskins with specials guests Violet Bell, John Dee Holeman, the Chatham Rabbits, Kamara Thomas and more.
