On The Road: David Blaine Has The Crowd Holding Their Breath In Asheville, NC

Here at Capture Kentucky, we are presented with a lot of great opportunities. Sometimes though, the cool stuff just doesn’t make a stop in our great Commonwealth. That’s the purpose of series that we call, “On The Road”.

In this edition, we made our way to Asheville, NC. A beautiful mountain town with a thriving arts community and a terrific music scene that’s probably most famous for the stunning home of the railroad mogul George W. Vanderbilt. (more…)

What Makes Magnolia Boulevard So Special? A Tale Of Talent, Humility And Fate.

Roughly one year ago, Lexington’s Magnolia Boulevard was formed. The band has quickly grown a passionate fan base and for good reason.

If this is your first time hearing about the band, please allow me to fill you in. Magnolia Boulevard consists of Ryan Allen (Keys), Todd Copeland (Drums), Gregg Erwin (Guitar), Maggie Noelle (Vocals/Acoustic Guitar) and John Roberts (Bass). The band has drawn comparisons to the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Bonnie Raitt and even the Allman Brothers. It’s rare for a band to be together for such a little amount of time and yet they know exactly who they are.

The Levitt Amp Whitesburg Music Series #3 Featuring Zoe Speaks w/ Appaltin

On Thursday it was time for another installment (number three of ten to be exact) of the Levitt AMP Whitesburg Music Series here in Whitesburg Kentucky. The beautiful weather and all the local schools being out for the summer saw the biggest crowd yet at the Mountain Heritage stage for what promised to be an entertaining evening of music with Appalatin and Zoe Speaks.

Zoe Speaks with their blend of Folk/Americana/ Old-Time Mountain music and award-winning songwriting was the first on stage tonight. Zoe Speaks is a band with deep eastern Kentucky ties; Carla Gover (Vocals, Banjo) is originally from right here in Whitesburg while Mitch Barrett (Vocals, Guitar) is from up north in Madison County. They were joined on stage by their daughter Zoey Barret on fiddle and vocals. They are presently working on their 4th album Wings with Jesse Wells (touring with Tyler Childers) at the helm producing and engineering, look for it real soon! (more…)

Poison, Cheap Trick and Pop Evil Invade The Riverbend Music Complex in Cincinnati

The 80’s produced some hideous outfits, but the “hairband era” produced many solid acts that truly never received the love and respect they deserved. At the top of that list, Poison. These folks made hit after hit seem easy. They brought their recent tour to Riverbend in Cincinnati with special guests, Rock and Roll Hall Of Famers Cheap Trick and the always amazing Pop Evil. I hope you enjoy my gallery as much as I did capturing the photos! (more…)

The Levitt AMP Whitesburg Music Series #2 Featuring Shannon McNally w/ The Seth Ferguson Experience

Recently, I founnd myself back in Whitesburg for the second installment of the ten-week Levitt AMP Whitesburg Music series (http://concerts.levittamp.org/whitesburg).

This week we switch from bluegrass to rock, country, Americana and a little blues. No rain or overcast skies this time around, the weather was perfect! That perfect weather brought out a decent crowd for this week’s free concert.

Starting off this week’s show is The Seth Ferguson Experience a rock band from just up the road in Paintsville, Kentucky. A really solid band! They played mostly original tunes and a killer cover of Neil Young’sHeart Of Gold”. Several songs from their debut album Seth FergusonMan Vs Guitar‘ including “Secret Admiration” “Hello, Again” and “Dark Night of the Soul”, before closing out their set with a track off of a live recording, ‘Live @ HBD 2018‘ “The Game”. If they are going to be in your area go out and give them a listen. I think, like me, you’ll be a new fan! (more…)

EXCLUSIVE: Colter Wall Destroys The Burl With A Little Help From Coby Langham

Colter Wall, a unique name, tied to an even more unique voice. Him and his good friend, Tyler Childers, are on a mission to save Country Music. Some say these two are the equivalent to a modern day Waylon and Willie, and you’ll get no argument from me.

The two sold-out Colter shows at The Burl (Capacity of 300) are a great indication of just quickly Colter’s star is rising. There is zero doubt that next time he’s in town, it will be in a much bigger venue, and deservedly so. (more…)

A Night With The Master Musicians Festival At The Burl Takeover

Somerset, Kentucky is a small city that many others could learn from. They have found their niche and are thriving. You could take a trip to Lake Cumberland to relax. You could enjoy one of many Somernites Cruises. Maybe you would prefer to enjoy the SomerSplash waterpark. For my money, you need to make the trip to Somerset on July 13th and 14th. That’s when the 25th edition of the Master Musicians Festival takes place.

This year’s headliner is folk legend John Prine. That should be enough of an incentive to go, but if not, allow me to talk some sense into ya. In addition to Mr. Prine, you’ll also be treated to performances by Amanda Shires, JD McPherson, the Felice Brothers and The Dead South. Still not convinced? What if I told you that some of the regions top talent will be showcased (more…)

Metal Icons Slayer Brought Their Farewell Tour To Riverbend In Cincinnati With Anthrax, Lamb Of God, Testament And Behemoth

Few metal bands can lay claim to level of notoriety that Slayer has garnered over their careers. Slayer is the mold, the pattern, the standard for dark and brooding metal. From the spikes often worn by Kerry King, the “blood” falling down on the crowd during “Reign In Blood”, and the bass playing intimidating front man in Tom Araya, there are lots of things to see and hear at a Slayer. We were honored to be able capture this iconic tour. We hope you enjoy the galleries! (more…)
