Peterborough Folk Festival | Evening Of Music | Sweet Night

I had a nice time at at the Folk Fest last night.  I really enjoyed Evening Hymns who was on the stage just after I arrived.  I also enjoyed the Great Lake Swimmers… but this band caught my ears.

1-Evening-Hymns

I’ve loved “Arrows” and I’ve used them on a mixtape.  Jonas is the main songwriter and he is from Orono.  The group was founded in 2007 and has some of it’s members that play in other bands like Burning Hell and The Wooden Sky.  They played some new material that they just mastered and will release soon.  I’m looking forward to following this band… and I hope to find them soon at a little intimate local venue up here or in Toronto.

tumblr_mj7d13M9NG1rkbry3o1_500Yesterday… I posted a video by Cameron Christopher that is a little video of the first half of 2014. This morning I watched his 2013 year in review mix.  So sweet.  It’s really easy when you think about it.  You have an iPhone or a new iPod with iMovie and you just shoot footage.  Maybe every 3 days or so…you take the footage and trim what you like and mash it up and then take it off your phone to your laptop and stick it in a folder.

You collect these little mashups and then blend them back to back to back in iMovie and slap a song on it and you have something magical that you and your family & close friends can share.

This stuff inspires me.  It’s videos like this that inspires me to make my little “One Second Everyday” Videos that you can view from the pulldown menu above.

This year was so good. I’m sure there were bad days but I can hardly remember them. To exceptional friends, good vibes, and lightness. ❤ Music: Avalanche by Blackbird, Blackbird

i did have a brief dip with a lovely woman one summer afternoon at her cottage.  One where you take off your suit underwater.  I want the undressing to happen at night before we go in to count.  This one was on my private bucket list but it’s made it’s way to the main list.
