Live Music in Kentucky

Every day of the week, you can find a live music or theater performance taking place on one of Kentucky’s many stages. Amazing venues like Renfro Valley Entertainment Center and the Madison Theater in Covington are great places to catch Kentucky bands like Cage the Elephant as well as other national touring acts and up-and-comers. WoodSongs Old Time Radio Hour is recorded weekly at the Lyric Theatre & Cultural Arts Center in Lexington, and the nearby Lexington Opera House is the home stage for many local groups. 

When the weather turns warm, Kentucky's outdoor stages come alive. Must-see productions include The Stephen Foster Story in Bardstown and Louisville's Kentucky Shakespeare Festival. And don't miss outdoor venues like the Jenny Wiley Theatre. To paraphrase the Bard: all Kentucky’s a stage!
