Heritage Music Series returns for a third installment | Local News

Kentucky Country Music and London-Laurel County Tourism are pleased to announce the third installment of the Heritage Music Series coming March 4-11. Both shows will start at 7 p.m. each evening and offer a listening room experience at the Heritage Hills Theater, located at 472 Falls Street in London. Tickets for each show are $10 and all ages are welcome. Appetizers and cash bar will be provided by Old Town Grill of London.

On March 4, Grayson Jenkins and Laurel Lewis will perform. Grayson Jenkins began writing songs during his senior year at the University of Kentucky at Lexington and began playing regularly at a town bar around the same time, continuing to play there for four years. Grayson is influenced by Don Williams, John Prine, Sturgill Simpson, Lukas Nelson, Keith Whitley, etc. He has released several albums, including his latest, “Turning Tides”.

Laurel Lewis hails from Laurel County with a distinctive handwriting and unique voice that has drawn people from all over to hear the “magic” everyone is talking about. In a world of cookie-cutter similarities and those jumping on musical trains, she continues to bring music all her own to the table. Laurel is currently working on her new album, alongside veteran singer-songwriter, Rodney Crowell.

On March 11, Cole Chaney and Lance Rogers will participate in the Heritage Music Series. Originally from Boyd County, Cole Chaney has made a name for himself with his songwriting and authentic stage performances. Cole sings songs about personal experiences, stories he’s heard over the years, and fictional characters. The young singer commanded the stages of music festivals, as well as The Burl and other venues.

Lance Rogers draws from his blue-collar roots, his Kentucky home’s love of the Bluegrass region, and the heart of his varied musical influences to craft songs that appeal to story buffs everywhere. You’ll hear traces of your own memories and life experiences in the unmistakable originality of the unique, sometimes raw, perspective of a hardworking Kentuckian as he paints musical portraits that touch a range of emotions. Lance recently released his debut album, “Outside the Lines” in October 2021.

Tickets are available online for $10 per, or at the door for $15. For those who buy tickets for both shows, they will receive a free poster signed by all the artists. The event is brought to you by London-Laurel County Tourism, Kentucky Country Music, as well as Hometown Bank, Wildcat Harley Davidson, Forcht Broadcasting, Kemper Home Furnishings, Sauced, Superior Home Inspections, Holler Sounds, Manchester Music Festival, Laurel Cove Amphitheatre, Bell Theatre, Minuteman Press, London Downtown and Oasis Entertainment.
