Live Music is coming back to the Bluegrass in a big way this summer. Railbird Festival returns to the Grounds at Keeneland August 28-29 with a show-stopping lineup of acts. To be frank, I can’t believe they could put together a lineup this awesome.
Dave Matthews and My Morning Jacket have been music festival headliners from more than a decade. They’ll get warmed up by two huge up and comers in the industry, Jason Isbell and Leon Bridges. The latter played in Louisville in the fall of 2019 and it was one of the most incredible performances I’ve ever seen, although I must admit I still feel bad for the folks who were stuck watching him sing behind me and Woo.
The headliners aren’t the only talented acts. Midland and Margo Price are wonderful musicians that blend country music and rock without the pop. If you prefer classic country, Tanya Tucker has you covered. The Band of Horses have a couple hits you know too.
I could go on and on but I’m just wasting your time to buy tickets. They’re on sale now with general admission for the two-day event starting at just $155. Gobble them up and prepare to once again enjoy sensational music outside of scenic Keeneland Racecourse.
