Blues Clues

Well, the Blues Fest was fun. We got there towards the end of the first band, got to hear two more acts pretty much all through, but left before the headliners. Sharrie Williams & the Wise Guys was good (Zippy commented it seemed like Hendrix electric blues at times), and the Ray Schinnery Band was outstanding and played a really long set. Saw my friend Rich from Northern Lights (I run into him maybe once a year at a production gig, and once a year at some outdoor concert or fest) - and we also ran into some friends on the way out.

Was a beautiful night, and I commented to the Zipster "...this is why we live in Hartford...." because it was a treat to be able to zip downtown, hear some great music, and not have it be a production.
