The Drunken Poets / Bio

The Drunken Poets are a collective of veteran Western Kentucky musicians fueled by the endless desire to create original, organic songs with true-to-life subject matter and feel. Established through back porch cookouts and late night jams, the members of The Drunken Poets share a vibrant comradery both on and off stage. Delivering an ever-changing live show, the group will pull you in for a ride as smooth as a placid lake while still keeping an edge as rough as mountain life.

Germinating from varying schools of musical thought, The Drunken Poets -- Steven Green (Vocals, Guitar) Kyle Robertson (Bass) Ellen Adkisson (Vocals) and Dave Dick (Vocals, Mandolin, Guitar) -- form a tight-knit package with material ranging from in-your-face bluegrass to sweet country ballads to wild gypsy dance. Regardless of their choice of song, The Drunken Poets have proven to satisfy the widest of audiences throughout every demographic.

Having over 50 years combined professional experience, The Drunken Poets members have shared bills with the likes of Guy Clark, Darrell Scott, Tim O’Brien, Jason Isbell, Allison Krauss, Rick Danko, and many others. On any given night they are capable of stunning an audience with guest musicians from all walks of music. A great show that only gets better after every night.
