Finally

I was back taking photos at performances. This time it was four performances by the students of the South Bank University, who had two weeks to develop performances in the church of St. George the Martyr. I haven't done performances for such a long time and I enjoyed it so much I almost forgot that my shoulders don't work (until I was reminded by the pain that occurred when I tried to lower myself to the floor), but I had such a great time it didn't really matter (so give me more I say).

After a while

I met some of my friends at the Green Note (where they always make you feel at home), where we listened to some English musicians who met in Nashville.

Midnight Poem

After knowing Katie for a while and only hearing her sing in her car, I have finally heard her sing live.

It is about as much as

my shoulder's can take these days. I can just about carry the most essential equipment to the closest venue to me, and take a few photographs.

My regular haunt

 with the Mannequin Death Squad

Chita

 and the Teenagers (now they will look daft if they will be touring in 40 years time with a name like that)

If I were a paparazzi style photographer

I guess today would be remembered as the day I bumped into the smiling Rod Stewart and his wife somewhere in Mayfair (close to the house with Jimi Hendrix's and Handel's blue plaques), but as I am not it will be remembered for Omni's concert in Rough Trade

and the wonderful evening at the Monarch entitled Charlotte Campbell presents the Songwriters'circle 
in which four female buskers from London (well busking in London)

presented their very different 

takes on life.

If you rush around

a lot, taking photographs, one day they will hold a festival in your street, just so you do not need to travel far to take photographs. 

(The Bethia Beadman Band)
They will give you films (no, I didn't take any photos of them - even though now, come to think of it, I could have), they will give you music,

  (Soulmaze)

 (Mudlow)

(Wills Morgan)
 they will give you poetry,

 they will give you a community and deck chairs to rest your tired bones,

 (Katmandino)
and when the night falls, they will take you indoors

 (The Hardway)
and give you more music 

 (Creole Moon)

(Creole Moon)
until you have had enough and you walk up your street, and go to sleep under the shining moon.

It was a bit of a strange experience

attending a concert in Islington, surrounded by an excellent mixture of nationalities from former Yugoslavia.

As it was her birthday


a few days before the concert (and we sung Happy Birthday at the concert), 


she deserves two photos (and all the other performers from the evening to be totally ignored (in this blog, not otherwise). On second thought, that might be a bit harsh, so here is a photo of her brother from the same evening

and one of their guests (do you recognise him?)
