About the event

“Do you remember . . . . the ballad of the past. . . . ”

From the opening question to the last line of their last song, Kentucky Avenue’s second record harkens back to the classic country rock music of 1970s Laurel Canyon, infusing it with their modern Americana spirit.  With a nod to Emmylou and Gram, Ballad of the Past presents stories of love and longing, loss and loneliness—but not without a notion that enough is enough or miracles are possible.  En route to California, their songs travel through the haunted hills of the South, the misty mountains of Pennsylvania and Virginia, and a stop in Asbury Park with a Springsteen cover.

“In the end,” says Steve Wosahla of Americana Highways, “the album feels like a book of short stories set to music with Ries and Schindler weaving in and out like lead characters.  You could say it’s a great read.”

Washington DC-based Kentucky Avenue has been recording and performing their variety of Americana, alt-country tunes since 2016, with music from their debut album Nothing Here is Mine featured on CBS, ABC, ESPN, and TLC.
