Concert Series Finale

After a lively summer of dance inspired concerts that showcased the blues, country, Cajun and rock music, the Music at the Mine Summer Concert series will present the final show of the season on Sunday afternoon, September 4th at 3:30 PM at the Kentucky Mine Amphitheater. We are warmly calling the concert “An Acoustic Afternoon” and the show will feature three groups that may “turn down the volume” a little but will certainly perform music that will satisfy one’s soul. Co-headliners The Juliet Gobert Band and The Rattlin’ Bones will delight the audience with muscular Americana folk music and compositions that harken back to medieval Europe.


Keep in mind that a BBQ catered by the Red Moose Café of Sierra City will precede the concert and will be ready to be purchased ($16) and enjoyed beginning at 1:30 PM.


Concert tickets ($12adv/$15door) can be purchased here.
