Colonel J.D. Wilkes, author, artist, film-maker, rocker, and harmonica-wizard, is presenting an Old Fashioned Square Dance with caller Ray Wyatt and music by the Lakeland Jamboree this Saturday night at the Jamboree's headquarters on 61 Jefferson in Cadiz. "You don't have to know how to dance to have a blast," he says, speaking with Kate Lochte on Sounds Good. Doors open at 7, lessons at 7:30, dancing at 8.

Clayton Campbell, fiddle player for award-winning Bluegrass group The Gibson Brothers talks with Tracy Ross on Sounds Good about growing up on stage at The Kentucky Opry, his career in music, and performing in front of his hometown friends and family in Draffenville.

Playhouse in the Park presents "Fiddler on the Roof," a long-running Broadway musical set in 1905 Russia, based on the story, Tevye and his Daughters, by Sholem Aleichem. The story centers on Tevye (played by Rusty Jones), the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his family and Jewish religious traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives. Kate Lochte speaks with Playhouse in the Park Director Lisa Cope, Pam Rockwell who plays Golde (Tevye's wife), and one of the fiddlers, Gracie Wallace about the production. The play opens this weekend, and runs through June 16. See how to get tickets at


MCLIB's next Evenings Upstairs program on March 21 at 7 pm is titled "Explore Kentucky's Diverse Fiddling Traditions." John Harrod has been performing over forty years as he brings old music to new generations. Because of its location between major routes of western migration, Western Kentucky became a melting pot of culture in the 18th and 19th centuries. Harrod explores the region's musical roots and gives a preview on Sounds Good.
