LouGrass is coming to Louisville KY

Hailing from the Bluegrass State of Kentucky, Bill Monroe is highly regarded as the father of American Bluegrass, as he and his band, Bill Monroe and the Blue Grass Boys, helped spread the musical genre across the South back in the 1930s.
Nearly a century later, Bluegrass music is seeing a revival in Kentucky’s largest city with live performances gracing some of the city’s hottest bourbon bars and music venues.
Performances often incorporate contemporary music and sound into the classic Bluegrass music genre, creating a microgenre we’ve coined as 'LouGrass'.
You can find a handful of local shows around town now, but starting in April of 2024, visitors and locals alike will be able to experience live Bluegrass music for FREE, every weekend, through the end of October. A full schedule of performances can be found at GoToLouisville.com/LouGrass.
Looking for more Bluegrass fun? Explore the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum and consider taking the short 2-hour drive to Owensboro.
If Bluegrass isn't quite you thing, we have you covered! Discover some of the best festivals in Louisville this year HERE.
