Harvester Performance Center has added Drive-By Truckers frontman Patterson Hood to its December lineup. 

Hood will perform a solo acoustic show in Rocky Mount on Saturday, Dec. 10, at 8 p.m. 

Hood is a prolific writer and performer whose character-driven stories are packed with political subtext. In addition to his work with Drive-By Truckers, Hood is busy as a solo performer and producer. He has dropped three solo albums and co-produced or played on additional projects by Jerry Joseph, Bettye LaVette, Booker T. Jones and The Dexateens. 

While he is best known as a musician, Hood is also a writer of essays, columns and short stories, having been published by The New York Times Magazine, The Oxford American, American Songwriter and NPR. As a speaker and lecturer, he has spoken and conducted classes at Princeton, The University of Indiana, The University of Georgia and The University of Alabama.
