The Wheelhouse Rousters: Live in Concert
Join us for a night of live music and celebration of Paducah's river heritage as we're joined by local string band, The Wheelhouse Rousters.
The Wheelhouse Rousters draw not only their moniker and musical style from the river and it’s industry, but their ebb and flow of energy. Focusing on long forgotten songs gathered by Mary Wheeler of Paducah, KY, the Rousters give a new twist to old tones.
