We're bringing live music back to Whitesburg, KY

1 week ago


Summertime means live music — and after a long COVID hiatus, we're thrilled to bring you five, free concerts live and in person!

Introducing the Whitesburg Live on Main Music Series. With our partners at the City of Whitesburg and Letcher County Tourism, we're proud to be present a series of free concerts by local bands taking place all over the city.

First up is Tiffany Williams, an Eastern Kentucky singer-songwriter. She'll perform live at Appalshop out on our solar pavilion. Here's the rest of the line-up:

August 7, The Pastime Band, Kentucky Mist

August 21, Three's Company, Boiling's North Fork Veranda

September 4, Pierceton Hobbs, Mountain Heritage Stage

September 18, Nick Jamerson, Mountain Heritage Stage

Every show is FREE and starts at 7 pm!


And the Whitesburg Live on Main Music Series isn't the only chance to hear live music this summer.

Levitt AMP Music Series takes place in small towns and cities every year, with free concerts presented by a local nonprofit. Competition to be one of those small towns is fierce! We were thrilled that Whitesburg was selected in 2018, 2019, 2020, and now again in 2021. 

It's an incredible opportunity to hear Grammy winners and local bands alike and to further revitalizate our downtown. Arts and media have the power to transform a community, and with 15 free concerts this summer, Whitesburg  is well on its way.

Check out the line-up and plan to be at Levitt Amp every Thursday at 6 PM this summer at the Mountain Heritage Stage!
