LouisvilleKy welcomes popular bands for this month’s Waterfront Wednesday

Louisville, Ky., – Louisville’s favorite concert series continues Wednesday, June 28, 2017. The WFPK Waterfront Wednesday® Concert Series is a monthly free concert on the Big Four Lawn in Louisville Waterfront Park, located next to the Big Four® Pedestrian and Bicycle Bridge.

This concert will feature POKEY LAFARGE, ROBYN HITCHCOCK and CARLY JOHNSON. It’s sponsored by Goose Island Brewing Company, Kroger,
Republic Bank, Passport Health Plan, and Friends of the Waterfront. Additional support comes from Kentucky Select, Software Guild and Look

“Incorporating elements of early jazz, ragtime, country blues, Western swing, and beyond, Pokey LaFarge has created a vibrant, deeply
expressive body of work that embodies an expansive musical vision and vivid storytelling sensibility that are wholly his own. He’s also
earned a reputation as a tireless, uniquely charismatic live performer, winning a loyal international fan base that regularly packs his rousing,
celebratory live shows.” — Courtesy, High Road Touring


Robyn Hitchcock, “the british elder statesman of indie rock comes out swinging with a terrific album that’s both twisted and full of great hooks.” — Chris Ingalls, _Pop Matters_

Carly Johnson may just have the most incredible voice in Louisville. This stellar talent can tackle any genre; from jazz standards to her new
album of original soul-pop songs. Carly has put together a band of Louisville’s finest to premiere the new songs live with a giant 12 piece

The Big Four® Lawn “opens” at 5pm, and the music begins promptly at 6pm. The remaining dates for the 2017 season are July 26, August 30, and
September 27.
