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.
Hot Brown Smackdown is a 6-piece jamgrass ensemble from the great city of Louisville, KY. Hot Brown has delighted concert/festival goers for years, combining brightly textured, hard-driving, POWERFUL bluegrass polyphony with high-energy groove and soul. They love what they do, and it’s evident at every show with their energy, enthusiasm, and their connection with the crowd. They’re here to have fun and spread the love, and the audience always reciprocates in full!
