A summer concert series in the heart of downtown Lexington. All four shows take place the 3rd Friday of May through August in Phoenix Park at the corner of Main & Limestone. “Gates open” at 5PM with live music from 5:30 to 9:30. Each night begins with one of the area’s best bands… followed by two acts from around the country.
The final installment will feature two Nashville acts – garage rock band Turbo Fruits and Southern folk pop band The Vespers.
Coralee and the Townies are a Lexington, Kentucky based band of a genre they’ve self-defined as HONKY TONK SOUL. And it’s a fitting description, as the sextet whoops and weeps with traditional authenticity and contemporary energy, with Coralee’s husky vocals front and center and the Townies providing a righteous, raucous rootenanny soundtrack around her.
