Red Barn Radio presents Lark Watts Live on stage Wednesday at 8 p.m. in the Performance Hall at ArtsPlace in Lexington. 

Lark Watts is a singer/songwriter from Kentucky. His songs are traditional country with a voice that is pure Memphis soul. 

A native to Winchester, Watts was raised on  bologna sandwiches and Ale8-1's, barbecue chips. His first performance was at the age of 5 for Ruth Taylor's Kindegarten Graduation Recital where he quoted the books of the Bible and sang "Me and My Shadow." Once he heard the applause, he was hooked.

Growing up together, and surrounded by music, My Brother's Keeper has played music together for years, but not under this official band name.

MBK was raised on the genres of Folk, Bluegrass, and Gospel, so the growing popularity of Folk music opened a door for MBK to take the music they love to eager audiences.

However, MBK does not limit themselves musically, influenced by bands of many different genres and backgrounds.

MBK consists of brothers Benjamin, Titus, and Joshua Luckhaupt on guitar, mandolin, and fiddle.
