If acoustic music is your jam, Harrisburg University is bringing two major concerts to the area later this year.

HU Presents today announced that Mexican acoustic rock duo Rodrigo y Gabriela will return to the Harrisburg area in October, followed by the folk band, CAAMP, in early December.

Rodrigo y Gabriela will play the historic Hershey Theatre on Oct. 8, following a sold-out show at the Forum in late 2019—one of the last major concerts in the Harrisburg area before the pandemic-induced shutdown of live music in early 2020.

The world-renowned duo is touring in support of their Grammy-winning album, “Mettavolution.” Multi-instrumentalist Silvana Estrada will open the show, according to HU Presents.

Then on Dec. 1, the American folk trio, CAAMP, will play at XL Live in Harrisburg. CAAMP features childhood friends Taylor Meier and Evan Westfall, as well as bassist Matt Vinson.

CAAMP is touring to support their first full-length release, “By and By,” an album that quickly entered the Billboard Top 200. The band also made their TV debut on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

Tickets to both concerts go on sale at 10 a.m. on May 21.

HU Presents recently has begun adding dates again for live shows in the Harrisburg area, most notably several concerts in Riverfront Park, including Young the Giant and Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit on Aug. 27 and Aug. 28, respectively, and Cage the Elephant and Portugal. The Man, on Sept. 23 and Sept. 25, respectively.
