6:00 – 10:00 pm – The Market August, St. Clair Street, Downtown Frankfort

The Market is a pop-up, open air makers-market located along historic St. Clair Street in Frankfort, KY. Presented by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Capital Lodge, The Market is held the last Friday (except holidays) of each month from June through November from 6:00pm to 10:00pm. While primarily serving as a platform for Frankfort community businesses, local artists, and nonprofits, The Market attempts to highlight the many talented and creative people in our community in a new and unique event format.

To make The Market possible, St. Clair Street from Main to Broadway will be temporarily closed to traffic. The Street will be lined with vendor booths, and the streetscape transformed. Vendors are asked to join us and sell their creations with preference given to local businesses. Additionally, a biergarten will be set up for patrons to enjoy on the street. Music from local and regional bands will complete each event.

While a fundraiser for the Odd Fellows Capital Lodge of Frankfort, the Makers Market is intended as a forum for community development. One tenant of Odd Fellowship is to “elevate the character of mankind” and we hope The Market helps build a stronger and more vibrant community. Please contact us for more information about The Market as we work to develop each event. Each event is free and open to the public. We hope o see you at the next Market.

Join us for a fun filled evening complete with crafts, food, and beer, the last Friday of each month June – November. We hope to see you for the next Market, June 30, 6-10pm.

7:00 – 9:00 pm – Grandpa Jones, at the Church of The Ascension-Episcopal, 311 Washington St

David Hurt has picked the guitar and banjo on many front porches around Kentucky; now he’s appearing as Grandpa Jones on Saturday, August 26, at 7:00 p.m., in the parish hall of the Church of the Ascension, 311 Washington Street in downtown Frankfort.

This Kentucky Chautauqua performance, supported by the Kentucky Humanities Council, is free and open to the public. Donations will be accepted for the Fishes and Loaves Community Food Pantry in the Appalachian community of Prestonsburg (Floyd County), Ky.

Admission is free; your generous donations are requested. The need is great in this area. Come join the fun and help support a great cause! For more information, see www.ascensionfrankfort.org or call 502-223-0557. 

As a performer, Hurt has acted at Stage One in Louisville, as well as many Lexington theaters. Besides his performances as Grandpa Jones, Hurt has been a farmer for most of his life and currently resides in Frankfort, Ky. 

Hurt recently received a grant from the Kentucky Historical Society to study Kentucky’s old banjo styles. The project took him to Knott County, where he studied with local musician George Gibson. Hurt said, “Claw-hammer style was how Grandpa played, but everybody used to have their own style, and there were lots of ways to play – the old-time style, as opposed to how (Earl) Scruggs played.” Hurt said Gibson is part of the old-time music circles and calls himself “the last ’possum up the tree.” “We’ve lost a lot of diversity in how we play, just like a lot of things in life,” he said. 

A singer, banjo picker, songwriter and, later in life, a television star, “Grandpa Jones” was constantly on the move during a musical career of more than 60 years. Hurt’s performance focuses on the life of Louis Marshall Jones (1913-1998), before he appeared on the 1970s comedy show “Hee Haw” and before he performed with the Grand Ole Opry. As he performs, Hurt said he tries to focus on Jones’ life as a touring musician in the 1920s and 1930s, playing on WBZ Radio in Boston and performing on the “Lum and Abner” radio show, which was Jones’ first professional job. From there, Jones set out on a lifetime of touring. As Hurt creates his “Grandpa” performances, he reveals many stories. 

Hurt said he uses many of Jones’ jokes and performs about 10 songs throughout the performance. Typical of the era, Jones had to leave Kentucky to find work, and Hurt weaves the story of Jones’ wanderings. Jones was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1978. He never retired. After a performance marking his 26th anniversary at the Grand Ole Opry, he suffered a stroke and died on February 19, 1998.

Open at 2:00 pm. Live music, at Bourbon on Main, 103 W Main St. 352-2720.
