Both based in Louisville
FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 10, 2017) — Louisville-based Spanish language theater group Teatro Tercera Llamada and Louisville Irish and bluegrass roots music ensemble Cloigheann have joined the 76 other Kentucky individuals and groups who make up the Kentucky Arts Council’s Performing Artists Directory.
The Performing Artists Directory is an adjudicated online roster of performing artists used by in-state and out-of-state presenters and others as a resource for identifying artists for performance bookings and projects.
Inclusion in the directory represents Kentucky’s recognition of artistic excellence in an individual or group of performers. It also boosts the profile of the region where those artists are from, as well as Kentucky’s profile when those performing groups travel out of state.
Teatro Tercera Llamada, which means Theater Third Call in Spanish and takes its name from the Latin American theater tradition in which third call means lights down, curtain up, is a Spanish language theater group.
In addition to the all-Spanish theater productions, the Louisville-based group presents bilingual children’s plays.
The Irish and bluegrass music group Cloigheann, based in Bardstown, has been around for about 30 years, said founding member and guitarist Mark Rosenthal.
