I’ve been blessed to be able to work with Master Musicians Festival. I was given the honor to be their staff photographer this year by Tiffany Finley.

The Who, What, When, Where And Why. The Kentucky Takeover In Nashville At Marathon Music Works
When I was approached about helping Whiskey | Soldier develop Kentucky Takeover, my mind, as it often does, began racing at all of the potential opportunities. As our conversations progressed, the two things that I locked in on were simple. 1. How can I help make this a yearly event so we can funnel Kentucky’s talent to Nashville? 2. Who best represents the music happening in our Commonwealth? Dan Collins (Whiskey | Soldier) and I came up with some really good ideas that I truly believe will make this show not only successful, but also sustainable. It’s one thing to dream something up, but it’s even more difficult to make…
Trans-Siberian Orchestra Lights Up The Night At Rupp Arena!
Trans Siberian Orchestra visited Lexington, KY on December 6th with their fantastic “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve” at Rupp Arena. This show immersed the audience in an experience not soon to be forgotten. Along with traditional Christmas favorites, TSO performed new pieces for the audience to experience for the first time. Members of the Orchestra played from all over the arena, even soaring above the audience at times, and playing from a platform at the rear of the auditorium. Everyone, regardless of their seating section, were given a fabulous view of the show. The show was way more than just a regular concert, it went beyond a musical experience, as…
Cinder & Smoke Fest Delivers A Community Effort That Felt More Like A Family Reunion Than A Music Festival
If you’re reading this, thank you. Here at Capture Kentucky, building a strong community of like-minded individuals who share their affinity for Kentucky is the core of what we are trying to do. From that simple idea, the Cinder & Smoke Fest was born and I don’t think we could have ever imagined the outpouring of love that took place at Proud Mary BBQ on Sunday. Especially for an event in its first year with a small budget and a free show. For me, it was validation for what we’re doing. I feel that people are seeing the benefits of us all working together and it’s a beautiful thing. My…
Cinder & Smoke Fest Promises Great Food, Cold Drinks And The Perfect Soundtrack To Summer
Here at Capture Kentucky, we do our best to shine a light on Kentucky’s greatest asset, her people. That’s the reason we decided to create the Cinder & Smoke Fest. We wanted to create an opportunity to bring people together while allowing folks that are way more talented than us, to have a stage and a crowd. Mother Nature was unkind to us in July, but thankfully we were able to regroup and focus on a new date. On Sunday, August 26th, Proud Mary BBQ in Lexington, KY will host our inaugural Cinder & Smoke Fest. We are bringing in some of our favorite Kentucky bands and artists from all…
