JT Word on his way to play

Red Barn Radio soundstage

Showtime: 7 pm




Hailing from Black Dot, Kentucky,

JT Word is a musician, a writer, and

by day, a therapist.  Diagnosed at ten

with a degenerative retinal disease,

JT has spent the majority of his life

face down in loss.  As a teenage

drummer, JT found camaraderie and

catharsis in rhythm and the physical

nature of drumming.  It soothed his

reptile brain.  But since returning to

Kentucky in 2012 and settling in

Lexington, JT has been on a mission

of discovery.  Devoting himself to a

personal exploration above his

globetrotting, he found a profound

desire to be present as a visually

impaired person, an ambitious need

to show that spirit, drive, talent, and

love should be what people see long

before they notice his disability.

JT’s music is a strange amalgamation of dark Americana, old school country, rockabilly, and Springsteen rock n roll.

Guests: Lisa Schmidley, Pam Queen
