Lincoln Amphitheatre's Three-Date “Amp Unplugged” Sunday Series starts August 28

Local Sources- The Lincoln Amphitheatre's smaller, three-date Sunday series of events called “Amp Unplugged," as part of its 2022 performance schedule, begins next month. The events will be late afternoon “matinee” performances diverse in genre.

“The intent of this series is to not only expand our seasonal offerings, but to bring performances to our Kyana Woodstock Performance Stage that we might otherwise not be able to bring as part of our normal Saturday series of events,” said Marc Steczyk, Lincoln Amphitheatre’s director.  “We are limiting this to three Sundays this year to gauge community and regional interest and, if successful, we’ll give stronger consideration to adding more Sunday dates in future years.” 

Amp Unplugged performances are for all ages with seating as general admission and available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Concessions, including beer/wine for guests 21 and over, will be available.

The 2022 Amp Unplugged Sunday dates are:

  • Sunday, August 28, 4 p.m. central:  Kentucky Shine.  Having recently performed at the ROMP Music Festival (among other events), Kentucky Shine has been recognized as one of the region’s strongest emerging bluegrass talents.
  • Sunday, September 11, 4 p.m. central:  “American Roots” presented by members of the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra.  A scaled back version of the EPO will present “American Roots” featuring brass versions of popular songs at the root of the American experience.
  • Sunday, October 9, 4 p.m. central:  Duke Tumatoe & the Power Trio.  Duke Tumatoe has opened for the likes of Muddy Waters, George Thorogood, and John Fogerty and his songs are a mix of comedy and blues.  He is also known for his regular performances on the Bob & Tom Show

The Amp Unplugged performance series is presented with support from the Perry County Community Foundation and the Spencer County Community Foundation.  Tickets for all Lincoln Amphitheatre events can be found at or directly
