January 13, 2017 – Central Kentucky Ag Credit continues a partnership this year with the Kentucky Fellowship of Musicians to produce Kentucky’s Bluegrass Music Kickoff. The event is ranked by the Kentucky Department of Tourism among the Top Ten Events in Kentucky.
Ag Credit has been a flagship sponsor of the event for several years, and is joined by a host of other area financial institutions and local businesses to provide funding for the musical event.
Other organizations who also support Kentucky’s Bluegrass Music Kickoff include InterCounty Energy Cooperative; Four Winds; Farmer’s National Bank; the Ruth Hagan Agency; Community Trust Bank; Hampton Inn; Citizens National Bank; Peoples Bank; and Commonwealth Capital Management.
The Bluegrass Music Kickoff in 2017 will be held at the Roby Dome in Lebanon. Musical activities take place on January 27 and 28. Friday activities feature jam sessions and “Biscuit Davis”, a 4-time national banjo champion, along with several talented area bluegrass bands, with “Dove Creek” as the featured Friday night band. Saturday is highlighted by a dinner-concert on Saturday night, as well as a music writer’s contest and a youth contest on Saturday afternoon.
Other high-profile entertainers this year will include Flatt Lonesome, a Grammy Award- Winning Bluegrass Band; the hilarious Moron Brothers; and The NewTown Band, a group that is fast climbing the charts of Bluegrass music.
All events will take place on the Ag Credit Music Stage at the Marion County High School Roby Dome. Ag Credit’s President & CEO Jim Caldwell said the event is being sponsored by the Ag Credit Lebanon Office and is highly valued as a community relations program.
Caldwell noted that, “As a financial cooperative that is owned by the members we serve, sponsorship of family-oriented events such as the Bluegrass Music Kickoff and the WoodSongs Front Porch Association are ways that Ag Credit can enrich activities in the central Kentucky region.”
