Kentucky Shine includes guitarist JB Miller, Steven Stewart on fiddle, bassist Ross Clark, and Jordan Riehm on banjo. They have released two albums, “Back in Again” and “Night Watch.” The band is true traditional bluegrass and has played at events including the ROMP Music Festival, First City Music Festival, and PorchFest.
The concert is presented by Lost River Sessions, an Emmy award-winning television, concert and radio series launched by WKU PBS and WKU Public Radio.
