Harriett Hendren - Lexington Herald-Leader

Rich Copley, of the Lexington Herald-Leader is joined this week by one of his colleagues at the paper, Harriett Hendren.

They discuss shows such as Sunday’s concert by singer/songwriter James Taylor and the production of  Once: The Musical as part of the Broadway “Live” Series.  

Rich Copley covers arts and culture for the Lexington Herald-Leader and Lexgo dot com where you’ll find more information about this weekend’s events. 

You can also find listings of arts and cultural activities at the events calendar link at WEKU dot FM. 

If you go online to ArtsCouncil-dot-ky-dot-gov, you’ll find a trove of information about programs and resources available to anybody interested in participating in Kentucky’s creative industry.  In 2014, the Kentucky Arts Council produced an in-depth report on this sector of our economy and the report has served as a roadmap for Lori Meadows in her role as executive director of the Kentucky Arts Council.  She spoke with Tom Martin.
