Kentuck Festival

KENTUCK-1
Some things are just worth the wait! This weekend Emma and I drove down to Tuscaloosa for Kentuck Arts Festival. Heavy on the folk art side of things, the festival features regionally renowned artists like Butch Anthony, Lonnie Holley and Charlie Lucas. My favorite happens to be the freshly made kettle corn and lemonade. Yes, it costs you an arm and a leg, but I assure you, money well spent.

I have visited this festival for three or so years now, and each year i find myself brining home something new. Besides greasy fingers (from the kettle corn) and a few Amos Kennedy prints, this year I picked up a dotten platter collage by Elane, which is currently perched snugly beside the unnecessary amount of vintage trinkets Emma and I scavenged from
thrift stores on the trip home.


OH! I have some music to impress.
The Jompson Brothers, played for a bit as we strolled through the booths @ Kentuck, and hot damn the lead singer had a pretty voice. I do recommend you listen.
