Lexington, KY - Organizers of Best of Bluegrass (BOB), the inaugural weeklong showcase of bluegrass music taking place in Lexington, have announced specific plans for the event that's aimed at upping the profile of Bluegrass music in the region the increasingly popular genre is named for.
Running June 3-8, the multi-venue celebration will showcase a wide array of artists working under the genre’s umbrella, from bluegrass hip-hop to the traditional masters. Organized by the Lexington Area Music Alliance, BOB will help usher in the 40th anniversary of The Festival of the Bluegrass, which takes place June 6-8 at the Kentucky Horse Park Campground.
In addition to a bevy of bluegrass-themed performances scheduled at pre-existing concert series — including Woodsongs, Southland Jamboree, Red Barn Radio and Thursday Night Live — Best of Bluegrass will host nightclub and street performances throughout the week.
