Music for all

Our family-friendly festival celebrates three decades

30 years and counting

Named as a Kentucky Travel Industry Association’s Top 10 Summer Festivals & Event, and the Southeast Tourism Society’s Shining Example of the Year, the Master Musicians Festival — held annually in July at Somerset Community College's Festival Field in Somerset, Kentucky — is a premier summer event in the Lake Cumberland region and beyond.

Our festival has remained true to its roots for nearly three decades, paying special tribute to “Master Musicians” who have devoted much of their lives to preserving their musical heritage and whose contributions have had a significant impact on their musical genre.

MMF has tremendous community support, and is operated by a fulltime executive director and 13-member, all-volunteer/working board of directors.

MMF brings multi-cultural multi-generational & multi-racial music to thousands each year.
A sound mission

As a non-profit organization, the Master Musicians Festival remains focused on our mission of bringing musical excellence to rural Kentucky at a low price.

And we pride ourselves on being a family-friendly event: Children 12 and younger are always admitted FREE, and youth music workshops are a staple of every festival.
