Recently, I was invited by Hills & Hamlets to spend an evening at Turnbull Creek Organic Farm with local luthier Kipp Krusa of Krusa Guitars, his wife Tallahassee and their son Sawyer, along with an impressive guest list of guitar enthusiasts. The night was host to a fabulous feast of fantastic food and fine guitars.
The photos featured here depict a farm-to-table dinner in the fields following a shop tour and discussion led by Kipp. Hosted by Fretboard Journal, a magazine devoted to the art and craft of stringed instruments and the musicians who play them, the invited patrons and friends gathered at the farm just outside Nashville in Bon Aqua, Tennessee to see how custom guitars are made, to share a meal at twilight and then retire with dessert to listen to the music of The Russ Barenberg Trio.
Despite the fact that many of the guests met at the event for the first time, it was an intimate evening all around. If you’re a connoisseur of rare moments as well as the finer things in life, you too could appreciate an occasion like the one here at Turnbull Creek Farm where the night had all the right ingredients for an unforgettable celebration.
If you or someone you know are planning a special event, contact me to see how we can capture unforgettable moments of your own.
