The Moonshiner's Ball, October 12-15, 2023
Page · Live Music Venue
The 9th Annual Moonshiner's Ball will be held at Rockcastle Riverside, in Livingston, KY October 12, 2023.

Born of Appalachian soil in Sharps Chapel, Tennessee, Sarah Kate Morgan sings, plays, and writes like she’s been in these hills since the dawn of time. She discovered old time music through a dulcimer built by her grandfather and started playing at the age of 7. At 18 years old she would win first place at the National Mountain Dulcimer Championships in Winfield, Kansas.
She’s gone on to build a unique personal style which honors mountain dulcimer giants such as Jean Ritchie while working across genres to build something new. Well-known and widely respected as one of the leading experts of the mountain dulcimer, Sarah Kate is also a first-rate singer and songwriter. Her earthy and poetic lyrics embrace the highs and lows of southern Appalachian life while her voice does the same – moving between alto and soprano parts with ease.
You might have heard her dulcimer playing on Tyler Childers' Long Violent History. She has also recorded with legends in old-time music like Alice Gerrard and currently serves as Traditional Arts Education Director at Hindman Settlement School.
You can find her performing on the Forest Stage Friday afternoon with Megan Gregory, fiddle and vocal instructor at Morehead State's KY Center for Traditional Music!

There will always be another song to be written. Someone will write it. Why not you?
