Our first show of the season featured a performance from the North Carolina group, Mipso. The act headlined the September Lost River Sessions LIVE concert at the Capitol Arts Center in Bowling Green, KY.

Since coming together six years ago in Chapel Hill, the group and it's blend of acoustic, folk and indie music has gained worldwide recognition. They have toured internationally, played the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and have been the subject of a documentary. The band's latest project, Edges Run, was released last year.

Our latest concert in our Lost River Sessions LIVE series featured Kentucky's very own Ian Noe and Nathan Blake Lynn. They performed live at the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and Museum in downtown Owensboro.

Noe is a talented singer-songwriter who has made a big footprint in a very short amount of time. Two years ago, he left Kentucky for the first time to go on tour. He has played for his hero, John Prine, since then and is currently in the United Kingdom getting ready to perform in London. Noe's LRS LIVE performance this summer came just two months after the release of his first full-length album, Between the Country.

The season finale of Lost River Sessions LIVE featured Nikki Lane, a Nashville singer-songwriter who blends country, rock and blues. Mike LoPinto played alongside Lane on guitar and she was also joined for part of her set by The Howlin' Brothers and Leslie Weiler Meng.
