1. Leight July-

Under her stage moniker “Leight July,” Murray State’s own Kayla Tuttle delivers her ambition through means of her voice and an acoustic guitar. Tuttle is making the move around various venues within the area. Catch her in Paducah later throughout the remainder of November.

Local folk four-piece Little by Little has been notorious for the extravagant sets at Murray’s Tap 216 and the former Mr. J’s Pub.

Come catch them soon in Paducah, with more dates to be announced.
