Join us for the Mayor’s Music and Art Series!

Held in the intimate setting of the Mayor’s Gallery at historic Louisville Metro Hall, these monthly performances will showcase local and regional musicians and artists.

Performances are the first Thursday of the month, at 12 p.m., lasting about 45 minutes. All shows are free and open to the public, first come/first served.

“Louisville has an international reputation for its music, performing and visual arts. We are creating an opportunity to showcase a diverse mix of performers and artists in the unique setting of Metro Hall, which is the people’s building.” – Mayor Greg Fischer

Brown-bag lunches are permitted, but due to the historic nature of the Mayor’s Gallery, no outside drinks will be allowed. Louisville Water will provide Louisville pure tap at the performances.All shows will be taped and broadcast on the city’s MetroTV channel which airs on Insight channel 25 and also online at www.louisvilleky.gov.

Thanks to The Kentucky Center, our production partner and to WFPK 91.9, our media partner.

Performing Oct. 4 —
Cheyenne Mize!
Whimsical, haunting, dreamlike music that eschews the traditional formulae, Cheyenne Mize presents a rainbow of juxtapositions. She has been compared to artists such as Neko Case and PJ Harvey. The New York Times described her 2010 debut, Before Lately, as “sweet without being cloying, weary without hopelessness,” noting the vast space between notes, yet lack of air. Her latest EP is We Don’t Need. Check out Cheyenne’s website.

Future performers at the Mayor’s Music & Art Series will include the Louisville-based world-music group, Sudanese Rebaba on Nov. 1.
