This little photography venture over the past 2 years has taught me a lot, and taken me to lots of places that I didn’t know even existed, right in the area where I’ve grown up. Such is the case with this shoot. A friend of these 4 men wanted to give them a gift, to remember their music-making together. For over 30 years, every Saturday night, all year-long, these 4 people have gotten together and played old-time songs in a family barn. Songs I haven’t heard since I was little. And they are very skilled at what they do. We had the privilege of listening to them play, and documenting their work together. I got to take Paul along with me, and we had lots of smiles as we listened and photographed this crew. An honor to listen, and a privilege to be asked to document the evening. (Plus, they gifted us with a CD which we have been enjoying.)
Thanks to all four of you for putting up with me photographing while you played and sang. It was a pleasure meeting you all.
