Muhlenberg Music Mission is a non-profit made up of proud Muhlenberg County business owners and musicians. It is our mission to breathe life back into the rich musical past of this region. Great artists such as The Everly Brothers, John Prine, Merle Travis, and Lost Dog Street Band all have ties to the county. Really if truth be told, all bluegrass and modern pop music got its start right here in Muhlenberg County on the banks of the Green River, but that's a story for another day. As an organization, our goal is to supply instruments and lessons to any youth in the county that is interested. We will offer paid, discounted, and free instruments and lessons to all children depending on their needs. All proceeds from this event will be used for future progression of the Muhlenberg Music Mission. Your contributions are greatly appreciated.

- 5:00 Kentucky Shine is a fast paced, string mashing, bluegrass quartet from Owensboro Kentucky.
- 6:00 CJ Sparks is an up and coming artist from right here in Muhlenberg County. CJ's style is best described as a mix of Outlaw Country with a twist of Americana.
- 7:30 Matt Heckler is a solo multi-instrumentalist that barely fits into any ordinary musical category. He tends to keep to the darker side of Appalachian mountain music and early bluegrass. Listen long enough and you'll soon be transported to the mountains of Eastern Europe or a dimly lit bar in Ireland where they honor those who have passed with a gently swaying a cappella ballad.
- 8:30 Lost Dog Street Band. The dark impulses Ben sings about are simply the demons that have driven him since he was a teen. At 16 Ben left home to play music on the streets. Since then he has lived under bridges, slept in jail cells, sought freedom hopping freight trains, battled addiction, and watched many good friends die from the same rambling disease.
His companion in life, Ashley Mae, is an accomplished fiddle player and harmony singer. The pair met in the Nashville punk scene when Ben was 15, and Ashley was 17. They share in a tumultuous love affair that's defied adventures, and misadventures. The couple formed Lost Dog Street Band in the winter of 2010. The duo's vision was to carry on the tradition of the American troubadour with fine Americana song craft and starkly real storytelling.
