25-26 August 2017 - Sun Dried Music Fest in Mason, Michigan (USA)
Mason presented another excellent weekend of music with the 8th annual Sundried Music Festival in downtown Mason. There were 13 solid bands ranging from young recent startups to well extablished high level bands. All of them were entertaining.
Below are sample photographs of their performances this year. I dusted off my Terratrike and, like last year, shuffled back and forth between the venues and my home to experience at least part of each band's performance and take some photos. Each band has a section below with a selection of my best photos and links to the band web site and facebook page, where they were available. A variety of music styles were represented and I found all the bands were worth seeing. Hopefully next year's Sundried Festival is as well organized and has equal musical quality.
Lots of rain last year, but this year had perfect weather. Once again the Farmers Market had to relinquish their regular Saturday spot on Maple Street, so they were once again in the pavilion at Lee Austin Park a few blocks away. I love our Farmers Market and have presented a selection of photos below.
As usual it all started on Friday night with a single band doing a 4-hour stand 7:00 to 11:00pm. This year Brian Lorente did this show.
This year I would like to single out the 89th Key band. These young men not only put on an outstanding show but also demonstrated great character. They were perfect gentlemen and talented performers, in addition to being particularly nice to me in obtaining the information I wanted on their band. I had a little extra fun with this band creating a couple stop-action animations. See them here.
