Shadow Shot Sunday - Tuesday Concert in Derby

Shadowy singer and saxophonist 
Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is back - we eagerly looks for shadows to fall and drape themselves over as many appropriate shadows as possible - and we are able to find and harvest when found...The time was last week, and the place was nearby Derby on the city green by the gazebo for the free summer concerts. Today the really fun act 'Dr Ya Ya's Dirty Rice Revue', Connecticut musicians that play songs by New Orleans artists and songwriters (we know by tune if not title)


Well defined early evening lighting
This was not just a warm and humid evening of a highly energetic and fun music (an improvisational R&B) on a small town green, there were also late afternoon shadows all over the pavilion and band...what better than this for (1) free and (2) SSS2?















This old song was played by Dr YaYa in a similar raucous style: Sea Cruise, by NOLA songwriter Huey 'Piano' Smith and artist Frankie Ford

Love the golden glow of the setting sun.

Outdoor concerts, just like outdoor movies, are the best! I plan to see Wizard of Oz this month. There is something about sitting outside that makes it all the more special.

What wonderful shots, Ralph. I love how music incorporates most things, from photography to art, to relaxation, to fun events, to life in general.

Nice shadow captures from the concert. Was it crowded?

I don't make music for eyes. I make music for ears.

Oh how we love a bit of creole music! Don't you love the free concerts? We are very fortunate to have free concerts in the park right across from our house....every Sunday (although tonights might be cancelled due to the rain & storms right now....but we won't complain...RAIN...glorious RAIN!!)
Great shadows....and music today Ralph!! Enjoy the week ahead!

Nothing like sitting and enjoying an outdoor concert! We did on Sat - at theMill Race Folk Festival and the 3 we heard were young fiddlers from 12 to 16. Amazing!
