Katie Laur Tribute Concert – 9/24

On Thursday, September 24 Cincinnatians will be able to pay tribute to Cincy’s Queen of Bluegrass, Katie Laur, at concert to be held at the Madison Theater in Covington. The concert will celebrate Laur’s life and musical career.

Katie Laur spent the majority of her life doing what she loved – music. Over this time she performed with a slew of other musicians and at live gigs all across the larger region, and hosted a radio program on WNKU 89.7. She eventually released three albums with the Katie Laur Band and received the Ohio Arts Council’s prestigious Ohio Heritage Music Fellowship in 2008.

The concert will begin at 7:30pm (doors open at 7pm) and will feature some of the region’s top Bluegrass artists (full list below), and will feature nationally-syndicated radio personality Gary Burbank as the event emcee. Tickets can be purchased online for $10 and will also be available at the door (map).
