-A A +A

The Frontier Band will will perform at this week’s edition of the Edward Jones Summer Band Concert Series at Bardstown Community Park Friday at 7 p.m.

Frontier is a band from London, Ky., that delights audiences with upbeat melodies and swelling three-part harmonies. The band includes Ethan Worley (rhythm and lead guitar, vocals and songwriter) his brother, Andrew Worley (rhythm and lead guitar, vocals and songwriter) and their cousin, Caleb Caudill (bass guitar and vocals).

Their passion for songwriting and performing music was born from such diverse musical influences as the Zac Brown Band, Exile, John Mayer, James Taylor and the Beatles.

Whether they are performing cover songs or original songs, these young men put their hearts and souls into their music. Audiences should come expecting to hear an amazing show by these very talented young men.

And the band has been the winner of numerous awards this past year: The band was the winner of the 10th annual Lake Cumberland Battle of the Bands; Andrew Worley was named the Guitarist of the year; Ethan Worley was the recipient of the Accompanist of the Year Award; and Caleb Caudill was named Vocalist of the Year.

In the event of rain, the concert will be held at the Farmers Market on East Flaget Avenue.
