Late night Thursdays are back and better than ever. Join us for the inaugural Bourbon and Botanicals music series, sponsored by Kentucky Artisan Distillery the Home of Jefferson’s Bourbon, Thursday nights from May 9th – July 25th (excluding July 4th). Bring your friends and family out to explore our beautiful botanical gardens, enjoy tastings of delicious bourbon from our next door neighbors Kentucky Artisan Distillery or purchase a selection of brews, wine, and snacks while enjoying live music from great local bands. We will have an informal plant walk at 5:30 p.m. each evening, with music starting at 6:30 p.m. The concert series is free to our members and included in general admission for non-members. Seating is limited so please bring a chair or blanket. Well-behaved dogs on leashes are welcome. This is a rain or shine event.
Mama Said String Band is a five piece group based out of Louisville, Kentucky. Their combined musical backgrounds, spanning multiple cultures, styles and genres, with a strong focus on vocal harmony and innovative instrumentation, builds a unique aural medley. Known for having a strong female presence, they gather influences from Bluegrass, Folk, and Americana. The Mama Said String Band brings to life sounds once forgotten while creating a youthful yet tactfully delivered message. In the past two years, this ensemble has performed at various notable festivals and events including FloydFest, Bristol Rhythm and Roots, and Terrapin Hill Farm. In June 2018 the band was named runner-up at the annual John Hartford Memorial Festival band competition. They also were nominated as finalist in the category of BLUEGRASS ARTIST of the year for the Louisville Music Awards. Mama Said String Band released their debut album in February 2018 and reviewers have boldly praised the up and coming five piece.
