Lexington, Kentucky – (For Immediate Release) – The first annual Cinder & Smoke Fest is proud to announce their inaugural lineup. Cinder & Smoke Fest takes place on July 21st at Proud Mary BBQ in Lexington, KY. It is a partnership between Proud Mary BBQ and Capture Kentucky, an entertainment company based in Paris, KY.

The 2018 edition focuses on providing a great variety of Kentucky-based talent that deserves a brighter spotlight. Capture Kentucky owner and Cinder & Smoke creator Jonathan Newsome added,”When we took a look at the talent available in Kentucky, it would have been easy for us to focus on a specific genre or sound. As we kept digging, we realized that our direction needed to be focused solely on talent. We’re extremely proud to present such a diverse lineup. We truly tried to bring something for everyone and we can not wait to share these incredible artists with you.

The diverse lineup includes Jericho Woods, Justin Wells, Johnny Conqueroo, Brother Smith, Trippin Roots, Joslyn and the Sweet Compression, Bedford and Sour Cream.

For a taste of each artist, feel free to view our lineup video below.

The inaugural event will take place on July 21st, 2018 at the site of Proud Mary, BBQ. Located at 9079 Old Richmond Rd, Lexington, KY 40515 Proud Mary is nestled right beside the Kentucky River underneath the Clays Ferry Bridge. The restaurant holds several events each year and is home to some of the best food around. Proud Mary is known for their BBQ, as well as their seafood and provides a great open-air feel similar to that of say a village watering hole on the beach. The Cinder & Smoke Fest will take place in the “backyard” at Proud Mary BBQ where the Clays Ferry Bridge provides an imposing backdrop for the stage.

The Cinder & Smoke Fest will be held from 1pm-11pm and will feature eight of Kentucky’s most talented bands or artists. The idea is simple, keep everything local and shine a light on the talents and Kentucky’s best resources, her people.

Make your plans now to enjoy some great food, fine folks and even better music at Proud Mary BBQ with Capture Kentucky on July 21st, 2018!
