GEORGETOWN, KY – Adam Luckey, class of 1999, has been named permanent host for the Lexington-based production of Red Barn Radio Hour. Red Barn, now in its 11th season, records each Wednesday at 7 p.m. before a live audience in the performance hall of ArtsPlace, 161 North Mill, in downtown Lexington. It is open to the public. Tickets required.
Luckey is a native of Charlotte, North Carolina, who spent his early years in the Piedmont region of South Carolina. Since relocating to the Bluegrass State he has slowly but surely allowed himself to be called a Kentuckian, embracing many of the cultural keystones of Kentucky.
After graduating with an emphasis on communications and history, Adam has worked as an actor, director and educator, and has had the opportunity to work with many of the theatres in central Kentucky as well as teaching creative dramatics in multiple counties throughout the state.
Music is a big hobby for Adam who plays a variety of instruments, so the new hosting gig is pretty much a natural. “Having the ability to meet, talk and discuss the finer points of music with musicians is what is so very exciting to me when it comes to Red Barn Radio,” Adam says in his online bio.
According to its Web site, the syndicated Red Barn Radio showcases Old Time and Bluegrass musicians, both from the Commonwealth and neighboring states where Kentucky music has settled and flourished. In weekly conversation and performance with talented guests, Red Barn Radio enlivens and archives Kentucky’s musical heritage, and brings to the airwaves a uniquely refreshing and folksy hour of Americana programming.
Red Barn Radio Hour can be heard on stations throughout Kentucky, East Tennessee and West Virginia.
