More than two dozen local musicians to share the stage during 10 in 20 album release show
Artists representing each musical group from 10 in 20: A Lexington Recording Project will share the stage for an all-star show at Cosmic Charlie’s on Saturday Nov. 10. The 9 p.m. show also will be music fans’ first opportunity to get their hand on the vinyl album including all ten tracks from the project.

10 in 20 Producer Duane Lundy explained, “Musicians will perform their songs from 10 in 20, plus additional music in their catalogs. Several solo artists will be joined on stage by bandmates from other projects; these include Willie Eames with The Tallboys and Chris Dennison with Chico Fellini. We also have planned some exciting crossovers among 10 in 20 artists.”
Lundy and Executive Producer Jennifer Miller launched 10 in 20 in 2011 as a vehicle to support and collaborate with local artists, and to bring national attention to the depth and variety of musical talent in Central Kentucky. An example of this success is a May piece by indie taste-maker Paste Magazine, titled “10 Kentucky Bands You Should Listen to Now.” It included Matt Duncan, The Fanged Robot, and Oh My Me, plus referred to “the excellently produced Lexington-based recording series 10 in 20.” National media focused on country music have paid attention to our work with groups including Sunday Valley and Coralee and the Townies.
10 in 20 raised money for the vinyl production through crowdfunding website PledgeMusic. Five dozen of the audience members on Nov. 10 will have pre-ordered their admission through PledgeMusic, at a discount from the door charge. Additionally, supporters who pre-ordered the vinyl album can pick up their copies at the show. Starting Tuesday, Nov. 13, the 10 in 20 album will be on sale at Lexington’s CD Central and the Morris book shop.
Saturday, Nov.10, 9 p.m.
Cosmic Charlie’s, 388 Woodland Ave.
Admission $12, ages 18 & up
