Kentuckians Chris Stapleton and Sturgill Simpson teamed up for an electrifying performance on last night's airing of Saturday Night Live.
During a summer that's seen Mother Nature prove uncooperative with Kentucky's music festivals including soggy grounds at The Moonshiner's Ball in May and a flash flood that wiped out Rudyfest in June, Saturday proved to be a pleasant surprise for Moontower Music Festival with sunny skies and a slight breeze throughout the day.
Since 1994 the Master Musicians Festival has brought marquee names to Somerset and the Lake Cumberland region including The Avett Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show and Willie Nelson. This weekend’s 24th annual gathering boasted fan favorites Colter Wall, Old 97’s, Dawes and Blackberry Smoke on stage at Festival Field at Somerset Community College.
On a Friday night that featured a smorgasbord of top shelf music including Mike Dillon and Big Fresh, it was Cincinnati's Dawg Yawp and Nashville's Los Colognes that stole the show at The Burl in a show co-organized by Dead Audio Blog.
