Kentucky Headhunters

The Kentucky Headhunters took the stage along Monongahela River Friday night for the latest Ruby Summer Concert Series.

Called “the great American rock ‘n’ roll band” by Billboard magazine, the group began in 1968 when brothers Fred and Richard Young and cousins Greg Martin and Anthony Kenney formed the Southern blues-rock band Itchy Brother. The band morphed into The Kentucky Headhunters in 1986.

Opening for the Headhunters was Ducain, a West Virginia band made up of Jeremy Sargent, Austin Lewis, Rich Mills and Jared Holley.

The concert series is presented by the City of Morgantown and the Hazel Ruby McQuain
Charitable Trust.

The free concerts are held every Friday night through Sept. 2 at Ruby Amphitheater in Hazel Ruby McQuain Park.

Opening acts begin at 6:30 p.m., with the headliner taking the stage at 8 p.m.
