Lovers of genuine homegrown Kentucky Bluegrass music will want to stop by beautiful Wagner Park, over in Anchorage, Saturday evening, for what is being billed as the “First Annual Anchorpalooza" music festival.
Two of Louisville’s favorite Bluegrass groups—Relic Bluegrass and Hog Operation—will be performing at the free concert, Saturday, August 18th, from 5:00 p.m. until 9:30 p.m., at Wagner Park, 11700 Osage Road (see map). Sponsored by the Anchorage Civic Club, the fest will include a fabulous assortment of grilled food for sale, provided by The Anchorage Café, and Callahan’s.
Music lovers desiring to have their whistles wetted can partake of the ice cold Falls City Beer (and other brews) at the cash bar provided by the Anchorage Civic Club Beer Depot. Local celebrity and raconteur Cary B. Willis will popping caps and pulling on the taps for thirsty patrons.
Relic Bluegrass is a Louisville-based band with a sound often summed up by the title track of their debut album, “Livin’ in the Past.” With their songwriting and multi-gene fusion, Relic Bluegrass is part of a revival of this platform, blending rich vocal harmonies with colorful instrumentation.
