Downtown ROMP: Air Show After Party
August 14, 2021 - 12:00 pm - 10:30 pmTicket Prices: $20.00
On August 14th, the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum hosts a concert event following the Owensboro Air Show. Presented by Owensboro Health, Downtown ROMP: Air Show After Party features Wolfpen Branch, Fireside Collective, Airshow, and Barefoot Movement.
Located on the riverfront in downtown Owensboro, the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame & Museum is a prime location to view the air show. Gates to the outdoor stage area and lawn open at noon for ticket holders to take in the sights and sounds of the air show, which features a performance by The Blue Angels, the historic aerobatic flight squadron of the US Navy. Live music on the outdoor stage starts following the air show at approximately 4 pm.
Wolfpen Branch is a new band comprised of several familiar faces in the emerging Bluegrass music scene. With a style that draws from the traditional yet pushes towards the progressive, Wolfpen Branch is a high energy, Kentucky-made bluegrass quintet that is a force to be reckoned with. Recognized as a band to watch in 2021 by the Lexington Herald Leader, members Arthur Hancock IV (f. The Wooks), Chris Shouse (f. 23 String Band), Aaron Bibelhauser (f. Relic), Kati Penn (f. Newtown), and Roddy Puckett (f. The Wooks), have created a fresh, new unified voice, representing their Kentucky roots and forward leaning sensibilities.
Hailing from Asheville, North Carolina, Fireside Collective is a familiar favorite with ROMP fans. Blending the characteristic interplay of bluegrass instrumentation and harmonies with strong original material and exuberant energy, Fireside Collective has drawn on folk, blues, funk and a wide variety of bluegrass sounds to create a distinctive body of work that’s all their own.
Also formed in North Carolina, The Barefoot Movement has also performed at ROMP Festival, quickly becoming a crowd favorite. Known for their Americana sounds blended with bluegrass and a bluesy grit, The Barefoot Movement is consistently exploring new musical territory.
Aptly named for this event, Airshow is an acoustic rock and bluegrass band based in Nashville Tennessee. The band combines Americana and jam band roots to create their high-flying sound.
