The award-winning Lost River Sessions is about to break new ground with its first live radio broadcast Nov. 17 from the Capitol Arts Center in downtown Bowling Green. The Lost River Sessions LIVE! concert will be broadcast throughout the region on WKU Public Radio beginning at 7 p.m. CT.
The monthly live concert series includes performances by regional folk, bluegrass and Americana artists with the Nov. 17 show featuring rising Americana folk musician Billy Strings of Nashville and Bowling Green’s own old-time bluegrass band The Pennyrilers.
“We’re excited about offering Lost River Sessions LIVE! to an even wider audience with the live broadcast,” said David Brinkley, director of WKU Public Broadcasting. “We’re hoping to capture the energy of live musical broadcasts in the same way A Prairie Home Companion and The Grand Ole Opry have.”
In addition to the live broadcast, Lost River Sessions is partnering with 440 Main Restaurant & Bar which is offering a “dinner and a show” package; for $28 a guest, patrons will dine from a select menu and receive a ticket to the show. Reservations are required by calling (270) 793-0450.
Lost River Sessions LIVE! is part of a community-wide effort to keep the Capitol Arts Center thriving with live performances, while bringing people to downtown Bowling Green to enjoy the shops and restaurants on and around the square.
Tickets are $10 for general admission and $8 for students, and are available at TheSKyPAC.com and at the Capitol on the night of the show.
Lost River Sessions is a production of WKU Public Broadcasting, including WKU PBS and WKU Public Radio. More information can be found at lostriversessions.org.
