Heritage Music Series announces March 2022 edition
Laurel Lewis is an Americana singer/songwriter hailing from Southeastern Kentucky. For years, her distinctive songwriting and unique voice has pulled people in from allover to hear the “magic” that everyone’s talking about. In a world of cookie-cutter similarities and those jumping on musical bandwagons, she continues to bring music to the table that is uniquely her own. After all, the best musical creations are the ones that are unique. Most recently, she was named one of Kentucky Country Music’s Top New Music Acts to Watch in 2022.
On March 11, 2022, we will welcome Cole Chaney and Lance Rogers to the Heritage Music Series. Boyd County native, Cole Chaney, has been making a name for himself through his songwriting and authentic performances on stage. Cole sings songs about personal experiences, stories he’s heard over the years, and fictional characters. The young singer has been commanding the stage at Laurel Cove Music Festival, as well as selling out a headlining show at The Burl this year. His lyrics keep us wanting to go “Back to Kentucky” when we leave the stage. Be sure to pick up his latest album, “Mercy.”
Lance Rogers, of Berea, draws from his blue collar roots, the love of his Kentucky home in the Bluegrass region, and the heart of his varied musical influences to craft songs that appeal to story lovers everywhere. You’ll hear traces of your own memories and life experiences in the unmistakable originality of a hard-working Kentuckian’s unique, sometimes raw, perspective as he paints musical portraits that touch a range of emotions. Lance recently released his debut album, “Outside the Lines” in October 2021.
