Live music is awesome, right? Now imagine incredibly talented musicians performing in an ethereal outdoor venue with an enthusiastic and engaged audience cheering them on. Well, that’s Lexington, VA’s Lime Kiln Theater!
Once an abandoned lime quarry near Downtown Lexington, the outdoor theater is lovingly maintained by an active board of directors and a group of dedicated volunteers. The 2014 season was a resounding success; six of the seven summer shows were totally sold out. The performances draw visitors from across the country but you’ll see plenty of local Lexington/Rockbridge residents in the audience. People of all ages and musical tastes feel welcome and have a great time. Food and beer is available for purchase and many people tailgate in the parking lot prior to the shows.
The 2015 lineup was recently announced and tickets are already going fast. The season will kickoff with a performance by Chatham County Line and Mandolin Orange on May 22nd. Perennial favorites such as The Seldom Scene and Love Canon are also on the schedule. If you need further convincing of how cool the 2015 season is likely to be, check out photos from last summer’s performances at www.limekilntheater.org.
See you at The Kiln this summer!
