Cherry Hill Concert Return

Last year I attended an outdoor concert by Andrew Acosta and his string band, just around this time. (The 2012 posting contains a link to the Acosta band site.) Thursday night they were back for their annual gig at the Cherry Hill evening concerts in Falls Church. I sat drawing and listening. First I drew this utility shed at the side of the music barn. Then I drew this colorful character sitting at the front of the audience.

He was wearing a Hawaiian shirt with pink flamingo images all over it, and a tropical pith helmet mounted with something....a gunsight? in front. This guy is Bobby Joe Small, a local banjo player and songwriter.
