Summer, music and community wind down in the final WFPK Waterfront Wednesday Sumer Concert Series. Wednesday September 26th an excited group of music seeking enthusiast gathered on the big fork lawn to share in a regalia of music. Food and drink were present in the form of food trucks and ever-praised, festival style, greasy treats. Around 6 o’clock the crowd settled into the lawn, laying out their blankets and sitting cross-legged in the grass making sure to get a good view of the stage for the first performance. The band Vandaveer, who had just gotten off a flight from Paris earlier that day, was excited to be back in Kentucky where a few of the band members were from. The tone was set for fun evening with the strong folk sounds; the audience enjoyed the combination of great music and a great atmosphere. The musical talent continued with a performance from Scott Miller and The Commonwealth and lastly an appearance by J Roddy Walston and The Business. The crowd was thrilled by each of these talented groups. It couldn’t have been a better night for a taste of music, and the great outdoors; the sunny warm weather created a comfortable atmosphere, perfect for music patrons to take in the scenery of the Louisville cityscape, kick back next to the river and enjoy some music. Waterfront Wednesdays continues to be a great way to get Louisvillians together to share the enjoyment of music. The strong sense of community could be felt amongst the multitude of people making for an enjoyable night in downtown Louisville. This unique way to spend Wednesday evenings, although finished for this season, will start up again next year in April.
