Blues in the Afternoon

This weekend was the Tinner Hill Blues Festival, celebrating music and African-American culture in Falls Church, Virginia. Saturday afternoon featured an outdoor free concert in Cherry Hill Park. The weather was excellent and a lot of people attended, including me. I sat there on my folding wood and canvas artist's stool and did this picture of the scene while the Deanna Bogart Band was playing. That's Deanna up there on stage playing the keyboard, in the upper right of the picture. She also sings and plays a mean saxophone! I got to meet her after their set, I love meeting musicians. You can find her on the Web at and hear some of her band's music at her MySpace page.
