Live Music

Local atmosphere, historic charm and good food make many of our live music establishments a great option for evening entertainment in Lexington. But you don't have to go to a bar to hear live music. Spring through early fall, you'll find live music every Thursday evening in the small park beside the old Courthouse on Main Street. (859) 425-2590. In the summer, listen to live jazz outdoors at Ecton Park or MoonDance Amphitheatre. The Jazz Arts Foundation offers free monthly concerts at the Central Library.

If you are here on a Monday night, try to catch WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour. Taped weekly at the Lyric Theater in front of a live audience,  the show features some of the best folk and acoustic music in the country. It's broadcast on over 400 radio stations in 32 countries. At ArtsPlace, Red Barn Radio tapes live Bluegrass Music for broadcast Wednesday nights throughout most of the year.

Search for live music? Tadoo.com and Actlucky.com do a great job tracking who is playing where.  The Lexington-Herald Leader publishes an excellent Live Music Guide in the Friday newspaper. You can access that information here: Kentucky.com's Live Music Guide.  Another great resource is the Live Music Guide at www.lama.rocks
