Summer Solstice Sketches by Joel Winstead

What a beautiful day Saturday turned out to be. The river was crystalline (and flowing fast), the beer was delicious, and the night was filled with fire and music. Joel Winstead captured the 2015 solstice party zeitgeist in some sketches.

What a blast the 2014 iteration of the solstice party was. Thanks for coming! And thanks to “electric triangle” for the new wrinkle…electric music at nightfall.

We kicked the keg (not bad for old people) and played acoustic music well past the wee hours into the pre-school hours.

Thanks for making the summer solstice 2014 party magical.

Joel Winstead has done some great sketching of my musical escapades, and I really appreciate his talent. Cool stuff Joel!

Here are some sketches of the Cigital Tech Fair gig put together with Phil Rossie of Ditched by Kate. (Nothing quite like one practice.)
