Onetime Chapel Hill regular Ben Folds is coming back to his old stomping grounds this spring, to play two shows with the NC Symphony.

The pianist will be at Raleigh's Meymandi Concert Hall March 22-23, with associate conductor Sarah Hicks -- and word is that there are two different concert programs, not the same program repeated two nights.

Ticket prices are still to come, but the public on-sale date is Feb. 6.

This will be Folds' first show in the area since that fabulous Ben Folds Five reunion in Chapel Hill in the fall of 2008.
