Kentucky Homefront for the holidays

Print
The influence of bluegrass music in Kentucky is undeniable in part because it is kept alive by a group of die-hard fans that continually head out of the house for events like the recording of Kentucky Homefront. The show is taped on the second Saturday of most months (January and July being the exceptions) at the Clifton Center with the next instance coming up on December 12 (doors at 7pm, show starting at 7:30pm). The Kentucky Homefront website (http://www.kentuckyhomefront.org/) sums up the philosophy: The front porch is a gathering place for friends and where strangers become friends; a place for sharing and creating traditions. Kentucky Homefront’s mission is to preserve, promote, and celebrate live grassroots music and storytelling traditions of the rich and diverse cultures of Kentucky and its surrounding states. The upcoming performance/taping features artists from McCracken County: Sarah Elizabeth and Nathan Blake Lynn in the first hour. A tribute to Louisville's recently departed Tim Krekel follows in the second hour, telling the story of how an informal jam session grows into an ensemble and features. Steve Eilers, Mike Williams, Kevin O'Brian, Ken Lucchese, Amos Hopkins and Eddie Hysinger are scheduled to appear with hosts John Gage and "Col. Bob" joining both sessions. If Bluegrass isn't your thing, perhaps the HullabaLOU festival is more your speed.
