Happy Birthday, Pete Seeger

Yesterday would have been Pete Seeger’s 100th birthday. Here he is performing at Burlington, VT’s, Memorial Auditorium back in the days of Kodak Tri-X black and white film, manual focus, and great folk music. The music continues, and you can still buy Tri-X.

Top of the Mountain

Well, not quite the top of Mount Mansfield, Vermont’s highest peak, but almost. Above some of the clouds, anyway!

Latino Night at Bagitos

The end of January marked the second anniversary of the Latino group that meets every Tuesday at Bagitos in Montpelier to speak Spanish, celebrate Latino culture and get together with friends. A typical night might bring together locals who are from or have ties to Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Ecuador, Honduras, Bolivia, El Salvador, Argentina, and Uruguay.

Black and White on the Oregon Coast

When it’s November on the Oregon coast and gales are ripping in from the southwest, almost everything turns black and white. These are from Cape Lookout State Park, near Tillamook

Session Americana/ZenBarn

The Boston band Session Americana at the ZenBarn in Waterbury last week. Jim Fitting on harmonica, Billy Beard on drums, Dinty Child on beer, etc. What I’d like to know is where did the Deschutes Brewery hat come from?

Last Gig at Charlie O’s


Last Saturday, The Suspects (Phil Hyjek, Chris Stone, Sam Burke, Lee Gardner, Al Roy) played their last gig together at Charlie O’s, perhaps Montpelier, VT’s, most famous institution except for, and with due respect to, the State House. Portrait at bottom is Chris Stone, the band’s harmonica player.

DSCF6988copyAW2It’s turning into a bit of a wait for winter here in Vermont: Mid-December and temperatures commonly into the 40s and 50s. No snow, except the kind that comes out of snow guns, greens surviving in the garden, open water, unfrozen ground, people in lightweight jackets buying Christmas trees. Pleasant enough, but weird.DSCF7060copyW DSC_3265copy_1W   DSCF6924copyW
