LUCAS, Ky. – Barren River Lake State Resort Park invites guests to the park every Tuesday night in April for its “Tour of America Barbecue and Music” event.  The Driftwood Restaurant will be serving various styles of barbecue buffet style from a different region of America.


Here is the schedule:  April 2, Memphis night; April 9, Carolinas Night; April 16, Texas Night; April 23, St. Louis Night; April 30, Kentucky Night.


And it wouldn’t be good ol’ American barbecue without some music playing. Jam sessions will also take place during this time and are open to all musicians who would like to get together and play. The park asks that the music be family friendly, and please call ahead to let us know how many will be performing each night. These sessions are open to the general public free of charge.
