Ron Short and The Possum Playboys are keeping alive and vibrant the tradition of bands that once traveled the back-roads of Appalachia and America, playing music that pleased and satisfied the eternal human longing for dance and fun.

Featuring fiddle and “Cajun” accordion, the Playboys play a lively mix of Appalachian/country/western swing/rock-a-hillbilly music with a “bayou flair” that sets feet tapping, hips swinging, and people singing! While the musical traditions may be old, the songs and interpretations are fresh and new!!

The vibrant bluegrass and old-time band from Danville, KY, CL8N8, will treat us to their energetic, fast-paced and harmonious style. Musicians Nate Link, founder of the folk music program at Center College, Clayton Carden and bassist Joey McGill will play original tunes and new ways of old-time standards from their new CD, Good-Times Boys.

Get ready for a good time! The Downtown County Band will change your idea of old time music. This young five-piece ensemble returns to the place they got their start, Downtown Frankfort. They have played countless venues across several states, and gained a reputation for artistic excellence. The Downtown County Band plays Memphis blues, appalachian, and jug band music, along with originals written in the old-time tradition. WARNING: THIS IS NOT A BLUEGRASS SHOW!!!!
