FRANKFORT - Save the Grand Inc. has joined with the Folk Club of Frankfort to present an evening of traditional Kentucky music with Kentucky Wild Horse 7:30 to 9:45 p.m. Thursday in the historic Grand Theatre, 308 St. Clair Street, in downtown Frankfort.
Kentucky Wild Horse is a six-member ensemble performing bluegrass, swing and old-time Kentucky fiddle tunes learned directly from earlier generations of Kentucky musicians. Organized by John Harrod, recipient of the 2004 Folk Heritage Award of the Governor's Award in the Arts for his work in traditional music, the group consists of fine individual musicians from across Kentucky - from Louisville to Pike County, and hills and hollers in between.
According to Harrod, Kentucky Wild Horse "has tried to recover what was 'throwed away' and keep alive the spirit and the sounds of our own native home in our own time."
It endeavors to "uplift you and set you down again where you want to be." Kentucky Wild Horse received outstanding audience reviews for their performances at the 2005 Kentucky Folklife Festival in Frankfort.
