Louisville multi-instrumentalist Jeffrey Ising normally posts his version of “My Old Kentucky Home” on Derby Day. But sadly, there was no Kentucky Derby this Spring due to the Corona Virus pandemic.  What will it feel like to sing it in September when the Run for The Roses…or will it be Run for The Fall Leaves… feel like? Luckily, this Derby anthem and anthem for Kentucky feels timeless. Jeffrey performs an instrumental version of the song on Dulcimer which is also the official State instrument of Kentucky.

Welcome to The Louisville Music COVIDiary, a web series that highlights our City’s amazing and talented musicians as they deal with the effects of the COVID19 Pandemic. Because of the forced closure of our music venues and other places for artists to perform, many musicians are left without much needed income and disconnected from their audiences and each other. In this series, we have asked musicians to send us their homemade music videos as a way to stay connected in this strange and uncertain time.

If you’d like to participate please upload your video to Youtube then send the link to Laura Shine at lshine@wfpk.org.

Laura is the afternoon host from 3-6 pm weekdays.
