Kentucky Avenue

Jammin Java

227 Maple Avenue, East

Vienna, VA 22180


Price: Starting at $18

Dates: August 21, 2022


“Do you remember . . . . the ballad of the past. . . . ”

From the opening question to the last line of their last song, Kentucky Avenue’s second record harkens back to the classic country rock music of 1970s Laurel Canyon, infusing it with their modern Americana spirit.  With a nod to Emmylou and Gram, Ballad of the Past presents stories of love and longing, loss and loneliness—but not without a notion that enough is enough or miracles are possible.  En route to California, their songs travel through the haunted hills of the South, the misty mountains of Pennsylvania and Virginia, and a stop in Asbury Park with a Springsteen cover.
