Virginia City music festival

After the cabin repairs, we went to Virginia City Nevada for the Americana Music festival.

Sunset over Piper’s Opera house where the venerable Darrell Scott played. Regrettably, I missed most of the show.

Having strange reflections in the infrared D5000. I have a tough time capturing Virginia City. What I left out was the many confused wandering people and the constant roar of Harley Davidson’s.

We stayed up late with old friends, played music and caught up. Sometimes, when the cigarettes from nearby gamblers were too smelly, I escaped for fresh air. Night time, Virginia City.

Stayed at the old Sliver Queen. Neat place. Noisy in the morning. This is looking up in the central area.

Stock was limited to disposable cameras in cool old Kodak dispensers.

The way the festival worked was 4 venues playing bands every hour. I walked between the Red Dog, the Old Washoe Club, and the one just uphill from there. There was an outdoor stage I never made it to as well. I was mostly here at the Red Dog.

The hard to miss Central Valley boys (plus one) put on a good set.

This is a confusing image of Yoseph Tucker singing, as seen in a mirror through the infrared camera.

This fella goes by the name Stinky. We were playing on the sidewalk when Stinky approached with a need to “rest his ass.”

We finished the weekend up with a nice visit from our first bluegrass band leader of the Back 40 Bluegrass band.
