On the Homefront - May 9, 2015.

Join us May 9 for an evening of music and storytelling as Kentucky Homefront records two shows for later broadcast before a live audience at the at Clifton Center.

We're excited to be part of a bill with musicians we love to hear.

The first show opens with our friend friend Eddie Burch, an extraordinary songwriter who is making his Homefront debut  Eddie is an extraordinary singer-songwriter whose literate, thoughtful lyrics and intricate guitar style are not to be missed.

We'll perform during the second half of the first hour.

The second show shifts musical gears to focus on the exciting sounds of Americana as shaped by great local exponents of the style, Justin Paul Lewis and Slow Down Johnny.

Col. Bob Thompson will be on hand to tell a story or two.

And of course it wouldn't be Kentucky Homefront without Louisville's own folk bard, John Gage.

Doors open at 7 p.m. Show starts at 7:30. Tickets: $12; $5 for students and folks under 18.

The Clifton Center is at 2117 Payne Street.

Start your Derby Day with Berries and Buskervilles (and pick up some tomato plants, while you're at it).

The spring harvest continues at the Bardstown Road Farmers' Market.  

Strawberry, rhubarb, asparagus, tender greens, fiery peppers. and plenty more offerings are on hand. 

And if you follow the local practice of putting out your tomato plants on Derby Day, you'll find a big assortment of locally started plants - popular and heirloom varieties - on hand.  

And, yes, √Buskervilles will be on hand playing an eclectic mix of folk music from 8 am to noon (1722 Bardstown Road). 

Because it's timely - and worth repeating - here is Thomas Merton's celebration of a spring day:  
The City's Spring

Though jealous March, in marble skies
Prisoned our April Saturdays, 
This air is full of courtesies. 

The walls, that wept with arrowy rain,
Turn a new presence to the sun. 
Flowers and friendly days are in. 

The bended lanes are loud with cries, 
And are become our Italies,

And bring sweet songs and strawberries.
