Appalatin will bring its culturally rich sound to W.W. Slider Humanities Center Recital Hall, 155 Blue Raider Drive, Columbia, KY, at 7pmCT, tonight, Friday, March 4, 2016. The concert is free and open to the public.

Appalatin is one of Kentucky's more imaginative musical groups. Based in Louisville, KY, Appalatin's sound is a fusion of American roots music with Latino folk music. The band, whose members come from Appalachian and Latin America, was featured in 2014 on Kentucky Educational Television's Kentucky Muse" documentary program. The five-member band is designated as a Kentucky Humanities Council performing arts group.

Lindsey Wilson Director of Library Services Phil Hanna,who oversees Lindsey Wilson's cultural affairs programming, says Appalatin always puts on a good show.

"Their music is a lively kind of music that is a fusion of Latino and American traditional music," said LWC Director of Library Services Phil Hanna, who also programs the college's cultural affairs events.

Friday's concert will mark the second time Appalatin has played at Lindsey Wilson. Hanna said he's become a big fan of the musical group, and he always enjoys their performances.

"Their last performance at Lindsey Wilson was a wonderful concert," Hanna said. "I've been to see them since their last play, and they've gotten even better." Contact LWC Director of Library Services Phil Hanna at or 270-384-8250.
