Live Music at the Kokomo Country Palace

The Kokomo Country Palace will again be hosting two nights of live music this weekend, featuring Grand Ole Opry veteran Craig Campbell tonight and Isaac Rudd on Saturday.

Campbell, a singer-songwriter who has toured with the likes of Luke Bryan, has been compared to country music icons like Alan Jackson and Randy Travis. His songs like “Keep Them Kisses Comin’” and “Outskirts of Heaven” has put his name on the tops of country music charts and earned critical acclaim.

Tickets for Campbell’s performance are $20, or $30 for guaranteed seats. He will take the stage at 9:30 p.m. tonight.

Rudd, a Hoosier native, will perform with his band, The Revolvers, beginning at 9:30 p.m. on Saturday. The cover for the night is $5.

Storytellers at the State Theatre

Storytellers from across the Midwest will converge on the State Theater from 8 to 10:15 p.m. tonight to deliver tales of fiction and non-fiction to bring laughter, tears and cheers to story enthusiasts.

The oldest form of entertainment and sharing of knowledge known to humankind (even pre-dating written language), storytelling, is alive and well today.

The group of storytellers are traveling from Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and Illinois. Their diverse backgrounds include college professors, comedians, public speakers, teachers, public relations and marketing executives, Army/combat veterans, and even a pastor.

Cost is $10 per ticket; students are $5 with identification.
