On January 8, the Kentucky Department of Tourism unveiled their 2020 visitors guide proclaiming it the Year of Music in Kentucky.  The Bluegrass state’s diverse musical offerings will be highlighted throughout the year, all across Kentucky, and Lawrenceburg/Anderson County won’t be missing out.

There are many talented musicians locally, which is why the Lawrenceburg/Anderson County Tourism Commission is hosting “Bands in the Burg,” a local musicians showcase on the Lawrenceburg Green.  This afternoon and evening event, which will help kick off the summer, is a free, family-friendly concert featuring 10 musical acts, all from Anderson County, along with food trucks, craft beer and other activities.
Owners and managers of multiple venues throughout the area that hire musicians are invited to see the talent they might be interested in bringing to their own establishments. Representatives from the music industry are also invited to come discover our diverse group of musicians.
Bands in the Burg is being made possible by local businesses, each of whom is sponsoring an individual musician or band. The musicians who’ll be performing include:
— Puncheon Creek – sponsored by First Financial Bank
