Grayson Jenkins and The Resolutions w/ Herb & Hanson
$7 Advance $10 Door
A native of the rolling hills and coal mining communities of rural western Kentucky, Grayson Jenkins is a singer-songwriter who now calls Lexington, KY his home. John Prine, Kris Kristofferson, Eagles, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, and many others have influenced his unique brand of Kentucky country music.
His lyrics are inspired by the words of Mark Twain, who always said, “Write what you know.” In keeping with this motto, Grayson’s songs pay homage to the things most important to him—family, friends, and a life without regrets.
His latest studio album, Cityscapes & Countrysides, was released in April 2017 and has garnered attention from radio and press in the region.
The project is a collection of songs written by Grayson during a time of transition and coming of age. It shows growth from his first release as a songwriter, musician, and band leader.
Grayson maintains a busy performance schedule, both as a solo performer and with his full band. In 2017, he performed over 150 shows in eight states as an independent artist. Moving forward, Grayson will continue to travel the country playing his songs and winning over new fans each night.
Herb & Hanson
American roots duo, Herb & Hanson, features two songwriters expressing themselves with little more than a guitar, a mandolin, and their respective voices. These restless ragamuffins have performed for audiences spanning the entire country covering 25,000 miles of asphalt, gravel, and dirt every year since 2005. Their blue-collar work ethic is unsurprisingly conveyed through their deft instrumentation hammering along with sweet harmonies sung from an honest day’s labor to bring their modern folk songs alive to modern America.
Herb & Hanson perform songs from Americana’s oldest influences. Incorporating the blues styles of both the Piedmont and Delta regions, the lyrical themes of the Blue Ridge hills, and the Ragtime bounce of America’s oldest cities into their songwriting and live show, this prodigious pair seeks to relay these traditions in a contemporary way for their audience to ruminate.
