Beautiful weather for a good day at the Chantilly Bluegrass Festival

With so much going on at the Chantilly Bluegrass Festival Saturday it was hard to figure out what to shoot on video and photography.  After a cool start in the morning the weather turned nice and a large crowd turned out to listen not only to bluegrass music but also recitals by students and performances that included classical and jazz.

Unfortunately, a overly-enthusiastic young clogger tried dancing on the field recorder I used for video shooting and turned it into junk but a backup for recording audio came through and I could salvage the sound for some six hours of shooting.  It will take some, though, time to edit the video but here’s a short piece.

A great day and congratulations to Dave and Gaynell Larsen, Jason Gallimore and the rest of the staff for a good event.  The crowd got to hear the public performance of “Chantilly Shuffle,” a song composed by Bernie Coveney for the event.
