Folk evening details

So. A first for me. A folk evening in a pub. The place is packed with musicians there for a jam.

Let's see what I can spot:

Meanwhile the pub is full of musicians. In the corner like you might expect:



But turn around to get your pint and..



You see. I had to get right in the action to bring you these shots. We have to suffer for our art, you know. Actually I'm a kind of folk groupie - this thing was organised by a branch of the family.

Pictures courtesy of the GX-7 and the Oly 12mm f2 and 45mm f1.8. Great lenses for this kind of thing. I spent a lot of time changing lenses, should have taken two cameras really.

Folk and chips.. and the rather good Tristan Seume in the background

Re: Folk evening details

Some nice arty shots there! How's your hearing this morning? What was that? "Pardon"?

That dog looks just like Nipper in the HMV advert, doesn't he? Difficult to say which is the best shot; they all have their merits. Well done.

Re: Folk evening details

Ah the old Snaar eye for detail and composition is in fine fettle.

A wonderful set. The incongruity of the timeless "classic" violins and the wierd modern "antipodean" tomato sauce bottles appeals to me.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Folk evening details

More great shots, loving the electric pick-up on the violin bridge and I wonder who was playing the dog...

Good shots there. Always interested in seeing this type (and style) of pictures.

Did he stick his paw in his ear at any point? That is normally a give away.

A lovely set from a great looking evening Pete.

That looks like a Fishman pickup on that violin. It fits into the slot with a bronze leaf spring.

Some interesting shots here.
