Live music – wine, spirits and coffee on the side – Part 1

Shelbyville, KY is a town that loves its live music. From bring-your-own-picnic concerts to a mix of headlining musicians and up-and-coming artists to a newly announced concert series at Shelbyville’s newest attraction, Shelbyville rocks out almost every weekend. Best of all, the music is free and served up in some of the most fun and distinctive venues in town.

Wine and song

Come rain or shine, the music (and the wine) pours forth at Talon Winery.

“Talon’s live music series makes for a great night out whether you’re with a group of friends or on a date,” said Talon’s Lauren Manuel. “Bring in a picnic while enjoying the variety of musicians and sipping a glass of Talon wine.”

Concerts take place indoors or out, depending on the weather. Inside, there is comfy seating in a gleaming tasting room with vaulted ceiling and three-sided bar. Outside, guests are privy to sweeping views of the surrounding countryside from Talon’s back porch and lawn.

You might choose Talon’s Sweet Evening Breeze, an elegant Reisling, to pair with a warm spring evening, Afterglow to sweeten up a rain-soaked day.
