Music, food, folks & fun.

Yesterday (Tuesday) Veseliyka played at our neighborhood farmer's market. We didn't make any money to speak of, but it was a good time. I like the sense of community our little market has. After all, what can be better than knowing the people who grow your food, seeing neighbors and friends and having the chance to either play some music or listen to music (and dance!) while you shop for locally grown organic food? And, due to the fact that in this group I play a relatively portable instrument and the market is so close to home, I can bike there!

Here are some pictures taken by our friend Paula White. The background is unimpressive since we are facing the market from its perimeter, so just imagine a bunch of stalls with people milling about, kids underfoot (literally - I almost stepped on a couple) and a beautiful, sunny, although rather windy, day. Sorry, no pictures of Dave playing his inflatable goat.

Playing a wind instrument can be a challenge on a windy day.

Me (again...). Recognize the hat?


This is the kind of thing that happens when you play on a windy day. Music on the ground.

Having you playing there made a sweet farmers' market even sweeter. It's my favorite place to be on a Tuesday evening. Nice hat, BTW. Thanks for the linkage.

P.S. You really need to post a picture of the inflatable goat.
