Southern Kentuckians love music! From the amateur playing his Hawaiian steel guitar to the singers and bands that have put WKU on the map, this region's Musical heritage is rich. Whether you like Country, Classical, Rap or Rock, you will find that Southern Kentuckians are indeed playing your song.
This exhibit highlights the Southern Kentucky Music Collection which is made possible by the generosity of local artists, musicians, promoters, and collectors. Please join our efforts to collect and preserve Southern Kentucky notes for future generations so that they will always be playing our song.
We hope that you will enjoy a glimpse into our Southern Kentucky Music Collection. These materials and much more are always available to you via KenCat, our online catalog.
