Lowell Folk Festival (Part 1)

Discussion in 'People' started by Aqualung, Jul 26, 2008.

  1. Today I went to the Lowell (Mass) Folk Festival w/ my wife, 2 daughters, and a friend of my youngest daughter. It was a hot day, but clouds came pretty frequently.

    The first group we saw was Tread (read about them here).

    With all the shadows on the stage, I decided to give Active D-Lighting (Normal) and matrix metering a try. Used my 17-55 & 70-200. C&C welcome, EXIF intact.

    1. Tread, a group that plays a mix of Irish - Canadian music. Harpist Triona Marshall, fiddler Jon Pilatzke and guitarist Jef McLarnon.
