Telling the big story of Kentucky’s small-town capital city

Housed in a 150 year old building that represents all that is left of the Capital Hotel, which burned in 1917, the museum is a large room filled with history and character. There are plenty of details to explore, with exhibits painting a vivid picture of both political and personal life in Kentucky over the past 200 years.

4:00 – 7:00 pm – Pierce Edens, at Talon Winery, Gordon Ln, Shelbyville

Pierce Edens is a songwriter at odd angles. The only music he heard growing up was in the local folk and old-time music hub of his mountain home, and the occasional reception on the car radio. Then, following a deluge of punk and grunge that enveloped his teenage years, Edens’ songwriting became a seamless blend of two worlds colliding. He likes to bang on old wooden boxes. He likes to break strings. He likes to stomp and howl out songs that tell his own story, and the stories handed down through the mountains. He is a songwriter steeped in the craft he grew up on… yet, Edens is an undeniably distinct voice at home in modern american music.
