Oldham County Parks & Recreation has launched a WoodSongs Coffeehouse program to establish a “roots music” scene in the county.
“Roots music” can best be described as an acoustic-oriented style that may include, but is not limited to: bluegrass, country, gospel/spiritual and singer/songwriter.
The WoodSongs Coffeehouse is a family-friendly venue with a close-knit, homey feel where new players and seasoned performers will be given the opportunity to teach and learn from each other through shared experiences.
Musicians of all skill levels are encouraged to come prepared to listen closely and play freely.
The next coffeehouse will take place 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Sept. 15 at the John W. Black Community Center.
The following performers are scheduled to play:
6:30 p.m. – Tim Curtis, singer/songwriter;
6:45 p.m. – Thomas McShane, bluegrass/celtic;
7 p.m. – Lea Cockrell, country;
7:15 p.m. – Kentucky Blue, bluegrass;
7:30 p.m. – Richard Perales, bluesy attitudes;
7:45 p.m. – Diane Kincaid, folk/Americana;
8 p.m. – Mike Prather, artistic songs of life in Oldham County; and
8:15 p.m. – Bradford/Stephens, acoustic variety.
There is no admission charge and all musicians are invited to bring their instruments for free-form playing at the end of the scheduled performances (“beans & greens time”).
Coffee and cookies will be available for purchase through Bluegrass Java and Q&A Sweet Treats.
