Moonshiner’s Ball helping revitalize the love for Kentucky music

For the last three years, Travis Young of Lexington band Blind Corn Liquor Pickers has been hard at work helping his bandmates organize the Moonshiner’s Ball, a grass roots festival hosted by BCLP that emphasizes Kentucky artists, while also featuring several prominent out-of-state acts. Last week I sat down with Young to discuss the biggest difficulties in organizing a festival, his vision for the Moonshiner’s Ball, Kentucky artists lacking on the festival scene, and much more. Read the full interview after the break.

Region’s best readying for Moonshiner’s Ball music festival

As we leave the dark days of winter behind and blossom into spring, some Kentuckians are beginning to open their calendars to May in anticipation of not the Kentucky Derby, but the Moonshiner’s Ball ­— a grass roots festival in Berea chock-full of the best musical talent from throughout the Bluegrass State and beyond. Lexington’s Blind Corn Liquor Pickers will host the ball, celebrating its third year, from May 20-22.
