Waterfront Development Corporation and Public Radio Partnership Announce 91.9 WFPK Waterfront Wednesdays for 2006 After Work on the Last Wednesday of the Month From April - September On the Harbor Lawn at Waterfront Park
Last year's WFPK Waterfront Wednesday concerts were a great success, with enthusiastic crowds mingling, dancing and enjoying the river. Louisville Waterfront Development Corporation and Public Radio Partnership will repeat the success this year when national recording artists and local talent will entertain at the after-work gathering on the last Wednesday of each month from April through September. This summertime tradition features great live music, free admission, a cash bar and upscale festival fare.
The April 26th 91.9 WFPK Waterfront Wednesday concert is sponsored by T-Mobile, Red Hook Ale, Southern Comfort and Friends of the Waterfront, and will feature Duncan Sheik.
Duncan Sheik's mainstream success may belie the depth of his work: he has scored for film and for the stage, produced ambitious records for himself and his peers and captured audiences around the world with his remarkable voice and songcraft. The New York Times says, "His dreamy mystical ballads ride on shimmering layers of instrumentation that add harmonic subtlety, emotional substance and a sense of physical distance to songs that have the feel of lotus-scented fairy tales."
WDC and PRP produce the "WFPK Waterfront Wednesdays" series, which has grown to be a favorite of downtown professionals and families alike. The dates for 2006 are April 26, May 31, June 28, July 26, August 30 and September 27 from 5pm - ?.
The Harbor Lawn is located between the boat docks at the Great Lawn and the Children's Play Area. Parking is available along River Road, in the Green Lot, the Orange Lot, and surrounding pay lots.
Please, no coolers, cans or bottles on the Harbor Lawn.
