Art Adams To Perform Sept. 18 at General Butler State Resort Park
CARROLLTON, Ky. – Rockabilly legend Art Adams and his band will be performing during the Sept. 18 “Play er’ Again” Concert Series at General Butler State Resort Park in Carrollton.
Adams, a Carrollton native, was inducted into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame in 1956. Adams and his band perform in the traditional authentic rockabilly style. With a 2003 CD release of “Rock Crazy Baby” and other original cuts, Adams’ career has been re-energized by both the older fans, as well as new lovers of the genre.
The concert begins at 7 p.m. on the grounds of the Butler-Turpin State Historic House at the state park. Guests should bring a chair. The free concert is made possible through a grant from the Carrollton-Carroll County Tourism Commission.
