Scott Preston has been shooting concerts in Cincinnati since 1998.  In 2007, he established as an outlet to share his photographs and his love of music.  And as a lover of music, Scott is naturally a big fan of WNKU.  So much so, that he's hosting The Cincy Folk Festival on June 27, 2015 at The Southgate House Revival to benefit WNKU.

They've made music together since they were young teens, coming together in Edinburgh from places as far apart as Ghana and Maryland. Young Fathers' hip-hop-infused poetry is intense; you can hear that on the group's new album, White Men Are Black Men Too.

WNKU turned 30 in April, but the party continues this spring and summer with the WNKU 30th Anniversary Concert Series.  Below, you'll find a list of WNKU artists coming to town in the next few weeks.  We'll be inviting many of these artists into the studio for live performances on the air, and we'll have tickets to give away to most shows.  We'll also be out and about at these concerts any chance we get, so be sure to look for the WNKU table, say hello, and register for some cool prizes!


The Juilliard String Quartet was established in 1946 as an all-purpose quartet that would embrace music from every era. Its founders' intent was to "play new works as if they were established masterpieces and established masterpieces as if they were new."

There are a few musical riffs that are seared into my childhood memories - the opening bars of "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson, the big chorus from "Let's Get Physical" by Olivia Newton-John and this.
