Louisville, Ky., – Louisville’s favorite concert series continues Wednesday, July 26, 2017. The WFPK Waterfront Wednesday® Concert Series is a monthly free concert on the Big Four Lawn in Louisville Waterfront Park, located next to the Big Four® Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge.
This concert will feature STRAND OF OAKS, LOW CUT CONNIE and ZACH LONGORIA PROJECT. It’s sponsored by Goose Island Brewing Company, Kroger, Republic Bank, Passport Health Plan, and Friends of the Waterfront. Additional support comes from Louisville City Football Club,
Live Nation and Allstate.
“Timothy Showalter, a.k.a. Strand of Oaks, hasn’t led the easiest adult life. Divorce, homelessness, a serious car accident that led to several broken ribs; it’s been a struggle, much of it making its way into his three previous albums. With the fourth, _Hard Love,_ he continues to express the trials of everyday life through his unique brand of psychedelic electro-folk.” — Chris Ingalls, _Pop Matters_
“Their high profile fans and success as a rock group stems from Low Cut Connie’s perfect marriage of roots rock’n’roll, because at their core is one Jerry Lee Lewis like American in Adam Weiner and a British multi-instrumentalist in Dan Finnimore. So you have best of ‘The British Invasion’ and blue blooded American rock’n’roll all wrapped into one Philadelphia rock band.” — Colt Jensen, _Huffington Post_
It’s R&B at its core, but Zach Longoria Project performs their special brand of “Kentucky Fried Soul” fronted by two incredible vocalists, Zach and Gina C.
The Big Four® Lawn “opens” at 5pm, and the music begins promptly at 6pm. The remaining dates for the 2017 season are August 30 and September
