Founded in 1979, The Pitchforks are the oldest a cappella group at Duke University. They perform on campus and across the country throughout the year, appearing in venues ranging from dorm common rooms to professional sports arenas. They have sung the national anthem at Chicago Bulls and Duke Basketball games, showcased themselves before the Queen of Jordan, and even opened for Ben Folds in 2009 and The Band Perry in 2015. In 2014, the ‘Forks crossed the Atlantic to tour with some of Britain’s best collegiate singers and returned to do so again in 2018. In 2019, the Pitchforks toured Mexico City and made appearances on TV shows Bandamax and Montse y Joe. Back at Duke, the Parents’ Weekend Fall Classic and the Gothic Christmas concert are two of the group’s favorite traditions.
