Whistle Peak, Elephant Stone coming to Back Porch Sessions


Rye’s Back Porch Sessions return Wednesday with headliner Whistle Peak.

The free summer concert series designed to expose audiences to local artists is held at Rye every third Thursday of the month, from May through September.

August’s event will feature Whistle Peak, Elephant Stone and special guests.

Elephant Stone has been lauded by critics for incorporating traditional Eastern instruments into Western pop-rock without creating a sound that has been cobbled-together.

The band has received praise from its South By Southwest appearance and tour that paired the group with The Zombies and The Black Angels, according to a press release.

Back Porch Sessions will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15 in the parking lot of Rye, located at 900 E. Market St. in Louisville.
