WFPK, T-Mobile, Red Hook Ale, Maker's Mark and Friends of the Waterfront invite you to WFPK Waterfront Wednesdays - 5:00pm until dark - the last Wednesday of every month all summer long. The August 29 lineup includes Cherryholmes with Adrienne Young and Little Sadie and Kentucky Sassafras. Performance times indicated below are approximate barring any weather complications.

 

 Approximately 9:00pm

Cherryholmes - Until April of 1999, the dynamic family band known as Cherryholmes did not exist, and half of its youthful members hadn't even picked up an instrument. In five short years, this high-energy Nashville-based band was named 2005 IBMA's Entertainers of the Year.

Cherryholmes has many qualities that make them unique, but the basis of their success lies in plain, old-fashioned hard work combined with shining star talent that only appears to glow more brightly with each performance. They embody the American Bluegrass dream. (Read more.)

   

Approximately 7:30pm

Adrienne Young and Little Sadie - Adrienne Young lives in Nashville, but everything about her suggests some other time and place: the teapot in which she brews her organic tea, the sunlight that spills through her windows over stacks of books and rustic jumbles of tapestries and instruments, her quiet passion and intelligence, and above all the sound of her music.

All of this comes into play on her first two albums. "Plow to the End of the Road" (2003) addressed such topics as sustainable agriculture, a subject made more fascinating by the eloquence of her presentation and by its obscurity among splashier if no less worthy causes. She tackled an even more esoteric agenda on "The Art of Virtue" (2005), inspired by Benjamin Franklin’s essays on the development of character and purpose.

You could not conceive of a less likely strategy for winning pop media attention — still, that’s exactly what Young achieved, from a Grammy nomination (most unusual for a debut indie release) to national radio exposure (via NPR) to numerous “best of” lists, including a “Best Country Single of the Year” citation from the Nashville Scene, third place in the Amazon.com list of “best folk recordings of the year,” and benediction from the Los Angeles Times as “the Americana find of the year."
