A Musical History at Shaker Village

Kentucky’s Shaker communities and the people who lived in them were a diverse, multi-faceted group. But not many people know much about them, says Jacob Alan Glover, Program Manager at Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill.

Thanks to places like Shaker Village and the continuing exploration of Shaker culture and history, some people have found a personal connection to the Shakers. Kitty Durham is the Music Interpreter and Head Gardener at Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill. Two centuries ago, her ancestors resided there, although she didn’t know it when she visited the site as a child.

The National Votes for Women Trail

2020 marks 100 years since the passage of the 19th amendment, which prohibited government regulation that would deny any U.S. citizen the right to vote on the basis of sex. This was a huge step toward the enfranchisement of all American women, and was the result of the tireless efforts by suffragists over many decades.

A new historical installation, the National Votes for Women Trail, recognizes many of those dedicated individuals, and several of the first markers recognize Kentucky women.

Marshall County Hoopfest

It’s no secret that Kentucky loves its basketball, and that enthusiasm is on display at the Marshall County Hoopfest, a high school basketball showcase. Kentucky Life visited Hoopfest and met coaches and players back in 2014.

Catching up with George C. Wolfe

Playwright and stage director George C. Wolfe has received accolades and awards for his work, including Tony Awards for directing Angels in America: Millennium Approaches and Bring in 'da Noise/Bring in 'da Funk. Before he became an influential figure on Broadway, he was a Kentuckian who grew up in then-segregated Frankfort.

In 2019, Wolfe returned to Frankfort to be interviewed by Betty Winston Baye in an event at the Grand Theater. Kentucky Life had a chance to speak with Wolfe after the event, and look back at Signature: George C. Wolfe, a profile that appeared on KET in 1996.

During an 11-year MLB career, Flynn won two world championships with the Reds and a Gold Glove award at second base for the New York Mets.

Doug was born and raised in Lexington and is involved with numerous civic and charitable organizations, including Hope for the Warriors and the American Association for the Prevention of Substance Abuse in Athletics.

Dave Shuffett, Host for Seasons 6 – 20

As host of Kentucky Life from 1999 to 2015, Dave Shuffett received nine Emmy nominations for on-camera performance and producing.

Shuffett is a native of Greensburg and a graduate of Murray State University. From 1989 to 1995, he served as both host and producer of Kentucky Afield.
