Ukrainian visitors get a taste of blues, BBQ

Some local music fans may be singin' the blues, now that the Louisville Blues-n-Barbecue Festival has wrapped up.

The area around the Water Tower has been packed with people all weekend. Live blues music and barbecue made for a tasty combination, sponsored, in part, by FOX 41.

"They just got through singing 'Big Girls Need Lovin' Too.' I'm one of them. I'm still single. Lookin' for a good man," blues music fan Latricia Priest said.

"I like it," Marina Yarovay, of Ukraine, said. "It's cool. It's interesting. It's my first experience to be at such event."

Several visitors who work for a TV station in Ukraine are in town as guests of FOX 41, and Sunday evening they got to take the stage, as our general manager, Bill Lamb, said a few words.

The Ukrainians are in Louisville as part of a State Department exchange program, as we teach each other about the business of television in each country.
