Free riverfront concert tonight on Wilson Stage

Staff report

Paducah Parks Services will hold its second RIVERfront concert tonight from 6-8:30 on Wilson Stage in downtown Paducah. 

The evening features Parker Millsap with local band The Drunken Poets kicking off the evening. The concert is free.

Beginning at 6 p.m., enjoy the music of Murray-based The Drunken Poets with members Steven Green, David Dick, Kyle Robertson and Ellen Adkisson. 

The Drunken Poets' music is difficult to place into a definitive genre, since it's a combination of bluegrass, country, rock, folk and jam.   

"Since I moved to Paducah, I've enjoyed learning about the depth of local talent," said special events coordinator Molly Tomasallo. "The Drunken Poets is a band that has sweet harmonies and sounds that will make you tap your toes or gently sway to the beat. 

"They will definitely set the stage for the edgy country and blues sounds of Parker Millsap."  

Oklahoma native Millsap will take the stage at 7 p.m. with Daniel Foulks on fiddle and Michael Rose on bass. 

Millsap's song "Truck Stop Gospel" recently made the list of NPR Music's 50 Favorite Songs of 2014. Millsap's songs are full of emotion, religious parables and tales of relationships making you believe that he has decades of life experiences; however, he is only 21 years old. 

The day after Millsap performs in Paducah, he'll be in Chicago with Nickel Creek and Emmylou Harris for Taste of Chicago.

The next RIVERfront concert will be July 24 featuring Tyler Barham.
