Welcome to KENTUCKY, USA – a friendly place to swap stories, indulge in gossip, and hear music your friends would have told you about if they weren’t on their phones all the time.  

Musician and host Ben Sollee has teamed up with The Kentucky Center to launch this new radio show featuring talent from around Kentucky and further South, in front of a LIVE AUDIENCE.  

Expect big laughs with an onstage cast including Greg and Abigail Maupin, Brigid Kaelin, and Tara Anderson, supported by live foley from beatboxing champion, Rayul.  

Kentucky native Ben Sollee cut his teeth performing as part of the onstage cast of the Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour. He has since toured the world. From Lhasa, Tibet to Lawrence, Kansas, Ben continues to share the beauty, humor, and struggles of his home state. As a composer, Sollee has created music for stage, screen, and virtual reality, earning an Emmy Award for his 2018 score Base Ballet. As a producer, he has curated hundreds of live events, including experiences for the Speed Art Museum and Lincoln Center.  

April Musical Guests TBA.
