Josh Turner and Black Violin coming to FMUPAC this fall

Josh Turner and Black Violin coming to FMUPAC this fall

The Francis Marion University Performing Arts Center is excited to announce a star studded 2022 fall lineup. 


Country music star Josh Turner and hip hop fusion group Black Violin will all take the FMUPAC stage this fall.


Turner will perform on September 29 and Black Violin will perform on December 10.


Tickets for both shows go on sale July 11 at noon.


A native of Hannah, SC, Josh Turner is a two-time Grammy-nominated country music superstar who has been topping country charts since 2003. His numerous hits include “Your Man,” “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” and “Would You Go With Me.” With nine studio albums, Turner’s arsenal of songs covers everything from mainstream country to gospel music. Known for his trademark baritone voice, Turner has a sound that distinguishes him from all other country artists of the era. 


Black Violin returns to the FMUPAC for the first time since their sold out performance in 2018. The Grammy-nominated group consists of members Kevin Sylvester and Wilner Baptiste, who use their classical instruments to create a unique fusion of classical strings with hip hop. First appearing on the music scene in 2004, Black Violin gained traction as a live music group, performing with the likes of Alicia Keys, Wu-Tang Clan and Mike Shionda of rock band Linkin Park. The famed duo eventually began recording and releasing original music a few years later. Now, with seven chart-topping albums–two of which were self-published–Black Violin is a major player in the classical music and hip hop communities.  


In addition to these shows, tickets for summer concerts are still available. Orleans will perform at the FMUPAC on Friday, July 15, followed by The Fabulous Thunderbirds on Friday, August 19.
