2018 Live Music at Kitchen Kettle Village!

Pull up a chair and enjoy the live music!

Kitchen Kettle Village has grown to 42 shops, 2 restaurants and 17 lodging rooms, and like most homes in Lancaster County, the hub of activity around here is our family-run kitchen…but do you know about the talented musicians who play at the Village?

While no one will ever replace our good friend Banjo Jimmy, who played in the Village for over 30 years.  Starting in 2018 we have welcomed a new line up of “regular” musicians.

Enjoy our “regular” Village musicians performing most days of the week. See the schedule listed below:
