Blue Skies


Blue Skies Music Festival has been a part of my life for the last 25 years. Its a wonderful gathering of musical people and musical appreciators, held on the long weekend in August each year. About 2,000 people attend, most of them volunteering to do a part in making the Festival run smoothly.

I have taken pictures there since my second Blue Skies, in 1984. They have all been digitized and some were used in the Blue Skies video that Andrew Hall made a few years ago. I will add them to this page as I have time but, for now, there are only the pictures from 2007 & 2008 available (and now 2009!).




Jasmine and I went for the day on Saturday. It turned out to be a good choice because there was rain on Friday and, if it was anything like Ottawa, there was lots of rain on Sunday.

Being there just for the day we had to drive back to Ottawa that night. So we left before the late, rockin', acts came on but we had a glorious day!
