PRESTONSBURG, Ky. — The Mountain Arts Center will showcase the inaugural Brandy Keg Crossroads music festival at the Jenny Wiley Amphitheater at Jenny Wiley State Resort Park.

As the first event produced by the MAC at the outdoor venue since the City of Prestonsburg signed the lease to operate the facility, Brandy Keg Crossroads will showcase regional and Kentucky-based acts, while featuring local food and beverage offerings.

“We’re able to expand our programming to offer some unique concerts in a different venue,” said Mountain Arts Center Marketing and Programming Director Joe Campbell. “An outdoor, nice venue like that … we’re thrilled to be partnering with. It’s one of the best venues in the state as far as scenic. It’s got a good feel to it, it’s a good mid-range venue with 600 and some seats.”

Headlining the event will be blues trio Short and Company, led by Jackson, Kentucky native Jeremy Short. The rest of the bill includes an R&B/Soul group, Pike County and Prestonsburg bands.

“It will be mainly for the Fall. We would like to have some Fall concerts over there. We definitely don’t want to interfere with Jenny Wiley Theater in the Summer, that’s top notch. So, late August until October we would like to have a concert series,” added Campbell. 

Brandy Keg Crossroads will take place on Saturday, September 22nd.

“Tickets go on sale Monday at 10 a.m. through the Mountain Arts Center Box Office.”
