Western Kentucky University Public Radio is bringing live music back to Bowling Green with the first Lost River Sessions LIVE! since February 2020.

The Po’ Ramblin’ Boys, a Grammy-nominated Bluegrass band, will be playing at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 21. The event will be held at the Capitol in downtown Bowling Green. 

The live session is open to all ages and is a family-friendly event. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and tickets are $12.50 for general admission. Tickets can be purchased here.

This will be the Po’ Ramblin’ Boys’ second appearance for the Lost River Sessions. 

Darius Barati, the producer of the Lost River Sessions series, expressed his excitement to have their first live show since COVID-19 paused production of live events.

“It feels like we have to really rebuild from the ground up and reestablish who we are and get back out in the community,” Barati said. “I’m excited about that opportunity.”

WKU Public Radio plans to host more events in the future and continue what they started before the pandemic. They will have another show in May and then pick back up in July to have one show per month through November.

Barati said their intention is to explore up-and-coming artists. He reaches out to small artists that he personally enjoys listening to and tries to help give them a platform for performing. 

“Our goal is to make sure we can never afford these musicians again,” Barati said. “If we believe in somebody, we will do anything that we can to help get them attention.”

If unable to attend the live event, WKU Public Radio records the sessions and runs them on its station on Saturdays at 4 p.m. Listeners can tune in by listening to WKYU 88.9 FM Bowling Green/Glasgow. Past episodes can be found on the Lost River Sessions website
