Bayfront Blues Fest Duluth 2009

From Friday to Sunday 5&6 of us were chillin' at the Blues fest. The music was awesome, the weather was not. Above is from Sunday, when it finally remembered that it was August, i.e. Summer. Friday was cold & windy, Saturday was wet and we eventually got back to our tents completely drenched. Must buy rainsuit!

My top three favorites were Otis Taylor, who performed a very innovative brand of Blues. Charlie Musslewhite and The Mannish Boys. But overall there were very few bands to be sniffed at!

Here the crew:

Laura & Frank. It was Frank who got us all out here.

Tom & Courtney.

The clouds were going by foot that day.

"Flags" to find your way back:

One of my favorites, a toilet plunger and trailing roll.

"Life is the Blues."

Pink Floyd.

Summer in Minnesota.

It may rain but we don't budge!

That special face in the crowd:

Now that's more like it! - Sunday:


Liz joined came on Saturday night and caught a bit of the rain in the night but the good day at the festival, using the umbrella for shade.

The vendors village:

That kid and his dad in front of us were a riot!

The sun is setting on the Festival:

The crew again after shedding a few layers:

Camping. Frank has scouted us a nice ground and site a hop skip and jump from the festival. And it's Monday morning and we are breaking tent.

The weather nearly wore us down, but in the end it was a really nice weekend!
Thanks to Frank for organizing and Tom for driving and doing most of the cooking!
