All Tied Up

 

All tied up and nowhere to go.  Its a dog’s life waiting for someone to return at a Festival.  I bet this dogs thinking “I’d rather be anywhere than at a loud Music Festival, and on double yellow lines”!

Worldwise Samba Drummers

 

Watched an all drumming band at this year’s Jazz Festival in Clitheroe.  It’s tribal beat had us all moving to an infectuuous rhythme.

Sousaphone

 

 

A cumbersome looking instrument which looked awkward to manouver into position.  Nevertheless I thought it’s impressive shape matched it’s sound as we watched the Lancashire Youth Street Band perform.

Headphones For Babies

 

A protective spectator ensure his baby is well prepared to withstand the music of an energetic Brass Bands.  This year’s annual Ribble Valley Jazz Festival at Clitheroe in Lancashire.

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.

Brass Monkeys Festival

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.

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’!
