Excitement is building for the second Levitt AMP Whitesburg Music Series, which is set to take place on the Mountain Heritage Festival Stage beginning with rising country star and Pound, VA native Kaitlyn Baker on Thursday, May 30. Organizers Steve Ruth, Valerie Horn and Marley Green describe the goals of the Levitt AMP Foundation, the unusual selection process, and the diverse musical acts performing over the 10 week series. They also talk about the value of what some call “creative placemaking.” In this case, it’s using inclusive, high-quality arts experiences to fuel the continued revitalization of Whitesburg’s downtown core. They describe the goals of Levitt AMP Whitesburg to include bringing people of all ages and backgrounds together to enjoy free, live music while strengthening the social and economic fabric of the community.
