I feel such privilege to live in a town so rich in music.

Emergency #21

Another busy show week for me, but I did get a chance to take a whack of photos.

I’m off to a rehearsal and a show, though, so won’t caption each photo. Maybe next week, while I’ve got a few moments to spare, I’ll revise the post with credits. But for now – come see the show and you can find out who’s who here at the Public Energy event page.

There’s three programs. Program A and Mirmidon opened last night. Program B opens tonight and you can see both programs Saturday starting at 7:30 and Mirmidon has a Sunday matinee.

Lots of good stuff.

I was up north Maynooth way last weekend for a lovely visit with friends one of whom is Rocky Green who’s having a show at Gallery in the Attic in May.

I spent two relaxing days helping to sort wood, stoke fires and make dinner.

It was beautiful.

As you can see, they have a skidder. Continue reading
