Originally, I was going to make a few jokes about the dog days of summer, but then looked up the origin of the phrase and learned that it’s how we refer to the most humid days of summer, and the rising of the Canis Major constellation. As Kentuckians, we know that the most humid days of summer are from March 1st through November, so we’ve been living in the dog days for a bit.
The best way I can think of to beat the summer heat is to not go outside until the sun has set. And, wouldn’t you know it, there are three free concerts in the evening this summer. CKCB is going on our annual tour, visiting Paris, Bardstown and the UK Arboretum! We hope you’ll come out to see us, to hear our dulcet tones mix with the chirping of crickets and to see if the fireflies can keep the beat.
From Sousa to Rodgers and Hammerstein, we promise an evening full of tunes you recognize, of the lovely nostalgia that comes from those hazy summer evenings. We’ll be in Paris, KY on June 30th, Bardstown on July 5th, and the UK Arboretum on July 6th. All concerts are at 7pm, and all concerts are free!
