parkerPOWDERLY, Ky. (1/16/20) — Parker Hastings is set to perform during the "Front Porch Friday" event at 7 tomorrow evening at Merle Travis Music Center in Powderly.

Hastings is no stranger to Muhlenberg County, having claimed the "International Home of the Legends Thumbpicking Champion" title at the age of 14.

“It is definitely an honor to play in a place with so much history and is home to many great players that have had so much influence on my playing," the musician said. "Muhlenberg County was one of the first places I came when I got into thumbpicking, and is where I’ve made so many lasting friendships.” 

Currently a Sophomore in Nashville’s Belmont University Music Business Program, the guitarist admits to being influenced by the likes of Chet Atkins, Merle Travis, Jerry Reed, Tommy Emmanuel, Eddie Pennington, Brent Mason and many others.

Tickets to Friday’s event are $10, while individuals younger than 21 can enter at no cost, organizers said.
