Every year the Master Musicians Festival selects a visual artist to represent the Festival with a music-themed image. The artwork is proudly displayed on the front of our annual festival lineup t-shirt. The original artwork is auctioned during the festival in a live auction that begins on Friday and ends Saturday afternoon. Proceeds go to benefit the Master Musicians Festival for the current year.
This year's "Funkzilla" is by featured artist Kay Kay Stonecypher of Somerset. The painting is on dispaly at the Carnegie Community Arts Center in downtown Somerset until the Festival opens.
Congratulations to Tim Allen for being named the 2014 Master Musicians Festival Music Educator of the Year!
Each year the Master Musicians Festival honors someone who made a significant impact as a educator of music in the Lake Cumberland Region. Every performer on the MMF stage has had someone who has guided or inspired them, and it is time to say "Thank You." The MMF board takes nominations all year long and votes each year to honor someone that has dedicated their life to the importance of music education.
Tim Allen currently is the Director of Instrumental Ensembles at Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, Kentucky. He was the Director of Bands at Adair County Schools in Columbia, Kentucky having taught there for twenty-eight years. He obtained his Bachelor of Music Education Degree from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, and holds a Master’s Degree from Western Kentucky University.
