Live Concert: 

Japanese Instruments Playing Bluegrass Music

This Friday at 7:00pm in Lexington

What do the koto, the shamisen, and the banjo have in common?  Well, Kentucky Bluegrass music, apparently.

JASK is pleased to announce a unique concert at the Kentucky Theater in Lexington on September 24, 2010, at 7:00pm, featuring Japanese performers on Japanese instruments, playing bluegrass music.  At the International Bluegrass Music Concert, Tomoko Yonenaga, Japanese koto master, and Time Lake, Kentucky-favorite banjo picker, who performed together at the Summer Festival, will play together again.  Also performing are Akeharu Kunimoto, who famously plays Bluegrass music on the Japanese shamisen, and Dean Osborne's Bluegrass ensemble. 

The concert came together quickly and recently - but don't miss out.  

Tickets are only $10, on sale now at the Kentucky Theater.  Purchase tickets after 4:00pm at the Box Office or register here to purchase tickets (add $2 processing fee).  Only 300 seats available.  

Downtown Lexington will be festive and fun on Friday, the evening before the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.  Please arrive before 7:00pm to avoid delays.  Click here for more event and parking information.
