The Louisville Leopard Percussionists have spawned yet another great drummer to go pro and this time a very high profile indeed with Hannah Welton. She is the drummer in Prince’s band 3rd Eye Girl. Hannah was born in Louisville then moved to Chicago when she was 12. Not only does she have great stories to tell about her life so far, but also a great attitude about life in general. We spoke with Hannah right before the 4 sold-out shows she’ll be doing with Prince at the Louisville Palace this weekend.
Before his show at the Louisville Palace on Saturday, the illustrious Harry Connick Jr. stopped by the studio and charmed the pants off of John Timmons.
Shovels & Rope tore the roof off of Headliners, but not before stopping into the WFPK studios to talk with Kyle Meredith and play a few songs. Listen in and hear a third song that wasn’t included on the broadcast!
