Lowell Folk Festival (Part 2)

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 group here is the Lonesome River Band (read about them here or here).

    We were able to get right up front; 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.

    Also took a couple of another band on the way out...

    1. Lonesome River Band

    2. The mando player Andy Ball, very talented, from Detroit!

    3. The rhythm guitar, Brandon Rickman did well w/ a broken string, didn't miss a beat on vocals.

    5. Mike Anglin played a nice, tight bass.

    6. Bagged, kind of hard to not stand out w/ the 70-200, LOL.
