The Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill's second annual Well Crafted — Brews + Bands festival aims to provide visitors with a full day of adult beverages, and great local and regional music.
Here's a look at what acts are playing throughout the afternoon.
Noon, Josh Nolan Band. The Lexington band rounds out a strong summer backed by the 2014 Fair City Lights album, which Ninebullets.net critic Scott Fuchs called "more Asbury Park, N.J., than Lexington, Ky,, but undeniably American."
Never miss a local story.
1:30 p.m., Tyler Childers + the Foodstamps. Lexingtonian Tyler Childers first turned heads as a solo artist with colorful tales of Appalachia on his album Bottles & Bibles. He has teamed up with a West Virginia trio and violinist Molly Lynn Page for his new endeavor.
3 p.m., R.L. Boyce with the Northside Sheiks. Mississippi blues artist Boyce joins the Lexington-based blues outfit of Willie Eames, Lee Carroll, Robby Cosenza, Smith Donaldson and Ray Smith.
4:30 p.m., Margo + the Pricetags. This Nashville-based traditional country act comes to Well Crafted straight off a date at the Newport Folk Festival. Price's music has earned favorable comparisons to country queens Tammy Wynette and Loretta Lynn.
6 p.m., Great Peacock. This Nashville quintet's moniker is more than a funny name. It is meant to evoke the grandeur of its sound, which is a cross between country and arena rock, like a peacock in full array.
7:30 p.m., Lera Lynn. See story, opposite page.
1 p.m., Bryan Minks. Lexington-based Minks has played plenty of local stages with his electrified folk sound.
2:30 p.m., Maggie Lander. An ace fiddler and an evocative singer, Lander has teamed with the Pat McNeese Band and Bryan Minks, and she is beginning work on her solo debut.
4 p.m., DeBraun Thomas. Thomas might be more familiar to some people as a WUKY-FM personality, but he has been playing his blend of rock 'n' soul around Lexington and is working on a debut album.
5:30 p.m., Melissa "Tree" Jackson. Jackson built a following in Lexington before heading to the East Coast for a decade. She has returned home and is sharing lead vocals in Small Batch with Warren Byrom. Speaking of whom, ...
7 p.m., Warren Byrom. A well-known band member in Lexington groups including The Swells and Big Maracas, Byrom has recently performed under his own name.
