Beatbox Boy

 

I saw this Street Busker around Manchester Market Street doing his own ‘Thing’.  Somewhere between the grunts and snorts I’m sure I heard vocals thrown in  ‘It’s Unbelievable.

On The Move

On The Move

I saw this sight passing by in the centre of Oldham during a Music Festival.  A stall with walking legs concealed by its wares.  What a novel idea for a market stall on the move.   Not sure what was being sold, but it captures the imagination.

Dowsing for Music

You can never tell what’s going to turn up at Festivals.  Dressed in fancy outfits complete with dowsing sticks there was a magnetic pull in my direction!!   It all adds to the atmosphere of a community spirit of music.

A Celebration

My love of music covers all styles, including iconic performers. Over Christmas the BBC interviewed Dame Shirley Bassey and her remarkable career span.  It was also a special celebration in recognition of Shirley’s 80th Birthday in January.  Fabulous vocal longevity, and in her own words. “How do you keep the Music Playing”.

Dance Celebration

An enlightening BBC Documentary covered the ballet career of Darcy Bussell.  Darcy’s  contemporary performance with her partner Jonathan Cope, was captivating with artistic movements.

On a Christmas shopping spree I got distracted by the sound of music everywhere.    This Band got my attention with dancers and children joining in with the music.  It’s the annual Winter event of the Brass Monkeys Festival  in Oldham.

Same time same place.  This Festive Stall in the park, at Marsden Festival reappeared in all it’s eccentricity as the year before.

A Festive Mood

Dog at Marsden Festival

If a dog could talk I woulder what this one would say.   By the expression on this dog’s face probably ‘a Festival Gig’s no place for me’!
