    Kenny Thacker is a musician and storyteller. His favorite genres are Bluegrass, Gospel, and Country…the stuff you’d hear on the front porch. Kenny is preparing to release his new CD this winter, the Front Porch project. Clay Hess is a Grammy award winner who first burst upon the national bluegrass music scene as the red-hot flat-picking guitarist with Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder. With his awesome speed and tasty sense of syncopation, Hess has established himself as one of the top flat-pickers in the business. And how we know them… We are blessed that Kenny Thacker is our Dad! He currently resides in Texas and is in town for a visit. Kenny and Clay Hess are good friends. Clay lives not too far from us in Ohio, so a visit from Dad is also a great opportunity to get the two together for some amazing talent, beautiful music, and great laughs. Yep, you’ll laugh.  Please join us! Just stop on by our home for a casual night together. Kenny Thacker’s concerts support his ministry, Sound Word. “Know the way…go the way…show the way”. Donations are appreciated, but not necessary this night. We’re simply looking forward to an opportunity to visit with old friends and make new friends over music and laughter. Children are welcome. Justin & Christine Smalley
