RYE, N.Y -- The Rye Arts Center kicked off their live music series, RAC-Live on Saturday featuring world-class musicians coming together for a night of live entertainment.

“RAC-LIVE! is about bringing relevant and diverse, high-quality live music to an intimate setting in Westchester. We are thrilled to kick off RAC-LIVE! with veteran blues musicians Phil Wiggins, George Kilby, Jr., and Sherman Holmes.", said Meg Rodriguez, Executive Director of The Rye Arts Center.

Kilby said he grew up listening to the Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd and outlaw country.

"If you listen, you can hear that in my music," Kilby said. "But hopefully, you will mostly hear me. But there are some diverse ingredients in the gumbo that makes up my music,” said Kilby.

Kilby said he is also influenced by his time in places like Paris, New Orleans, New York and Princeton.
