A Bluegrass music concert series is coming to Northern Kentucky next week at Taylor Creek Park, the riverfront park on the Ohio River that straddles the boundary between the cities of Bellevue and Newport.

The free concert series – known as “Kentucky Bluegrass on the Ohio River”   – will be held once each month during June, July, and August from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The first concert takes place June 17, with two other events on July 15 and Aug. 12. WesBanco and VS Engineering are presenting the concerts this summer.

The Bluegrass bands scheduled to play during the concert series are:

•June 17: Steve Bonafel & One Iota

•July 15: Ma Crow & Company

•August 12: Steve Bonafel & One Iota

The concerts will showcase Taylor Creek Park — the park along Riverfront Commons that is located between Joe’s Crab Shack and The Chart House on Riverboat Row — which was completed two years ago.

“Since it was such a hit last year, we are excited to bring back the Bluegrass concert series this year to Taylor Creek Park,” said Jack Moreland, president of Southbank Partners. “You can bring the whole family to these free shows. The park is the perfect location for a summertime concert series.”

People attending the concert are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets to the venue.

 Southbank Partners, a community and economic development organization, promotes and manages economic development and infrastructure improvement projects in the Northern Kentucky’s six Ohio River cities – Bellevue, Covington, Dayton, Fort Thomas, Ludlow, and Newport.

Riverfront Commons — an 11.5-mile uninterrupted walking, running, and biking trail that links these cities — is the signature project of Southbank Partners.
