Sundy Best Helps Out The Animal Alliance of East Kentucky At The MAC In Prestonsburg, KY

As I was traveling the 20 or so miles along Highway 80 between Hindman, KY and the Prestonsburg exit of Highway 23. I was thinking about Sundy Best and all the other country acts I’ve photographed this year, Travis Tritt (twice), Charlie Daniels, Chris Stapleton, Tyler Childers (twice) and Elizabeth Cook. (more…)

Eastern Kentucky’s Tyler Childers Unleashes ‘Purgatory’

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve likely ran across an article on the latest Kentucky sensation, Tyler Childers. At the very least, you’ve seen Tyler’s name attached to another of Kentucky’s musical treasures in Sturgill Simpson. Some have even compared Tyler’s songwriting abilities to that of yet another Eastern Kentuckian in Chris Stapleton.

I’m here to set the record straight once and for all. Tyler Childers is neither of those artists. He is simply Tyler Childers. His voice is (more…)

Tyler Childers with NewTown at The Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg, KY

I’ll be honest, going into this summer I wasn’t a very big bluegrass fan. After spending a weekend at The Master Musicians Festival listening to The Wooks, The Local Honeys and now NewTown I’m beginning to have a change of heart.

NewTown calls Lexington, Kentucky home but they play like they are from the hollow down the road! For those of you that don’t know where I live, I live in the Appalachian mountains of Kentucky. Saying they play like they are from a hollow down the road is definitely a compliment!! Kati Penn, JR Williams, Travis Anderson, Hayes Griffin and Mitchell Cannon entertained the MAC crowd with their blend of acoustic, bluegrass and Americana music. With songs like “Never Gonna Change” ”Feast of the Gryphon” ”Dublin Blues” “Gonna take a Train” and a super cover of Tyler Childers own “Harlan Road” which is also the name NewTown’s latest album. Pick one of their three albums up, you will not be sorry! (more…)

Last In Line with Sinful Lilly and Dula atThe Forum in Hazard, KY

Richmond, Kentucky’s Sinful Lilly started this night of rock and roll off with a high energy and entertaining set. Fredi Handshoe (guitar and vocals), Nikki Handshoe (bass and vocals) and Trey Bledsoe (drums), know how to fire up a crowd. Loud music, cool lights and great stage presence equal a great show! One of my personal favorites to photograph, they play to the camera as well as the play for the crowd! The set list included “Wait Your Turn” “Jack” a killer cover of Ace Frehley’s “Snowblind” closing out their set with “Truth or Consequence” (more…)

Day Two From The Master Musicians Festival in Somerset, KY

After a thunderstorm shook me out of bed overnight I was worried about the Festival field being a muddy mess, which is definitely no fun when you’re carrying expensive equipment. No worries needed, other than a spot here and there the field was in great shape for Saturday. (more…)
