Last Wednesday, we drove over to the reservoir for the first of the City's Wednesday night concert series. The singer was a local guy named Chris Castle. He's a singer-songwriter, as they call 'em, who has actually cracked the Billboard Americana charts with his new CD. And it is pretty good stuff. For those who know their music history, it was recorded in the late Levon Helms' studio. And fellow Band member Garth Hudson contributed some B-3 organ playing on a couple of the tracks.
These are some pictures of Wednesday night's event, including a swallow who was busy feeding young 'uns up above the venue floor. Them birds are gonna be rocking for the next few Wednesday nights.
We went back to the reservoir tonight for a different kind of
concert, listening to the songbirds in amongst the reeds. Here are some
shots of what we found about 400 feet away from Wednesday's venue.
