Behringer-Crawford’s May 4 NKY History hour to explore Northern Kentucky’s music history

Kentucky’s musical roots extend far across the commonwealth into our region with famous well-known artists such as Rosemary Clooney and Haven Gillespie. From bluegrass to folk, to classical music and holiday tunes, our local musical identity spans generations and genres.

Join Kate McKenzie of the Kenton County Public library as she explores the musical history of Northern Kentucky during the next NKY History Hour, Wednesday, May 4, at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom and Facebook Live.

Using photographs from the library’s archives, Faces & Places, McKenzie will share photographs highlighting the careers of many notable artists that have left a lasting imprint on our diverse musical culture including violinist Vladimir Lukashuk of Erlanger, KY and the first-known professional musician in NKY, Joseph Tosso.
