CD Release Show

 

Whew! What a month! I wrapped up September with a weekend full of shows. It began in Berea, KY where I played eight shows in one day for around 900 fourth graders who were all taking part in the Berea Arts Council's Walk for the Arts. It is a very cool event where the students get exposed to a variety of arts in a beautiful park setting. 

I then came back to Knoxville to do my live Kidstuff radio show with my special guest Michelle Porter. I remember Michelle when she was a young girl, perhaps 8 or 9, playing mandolin with grown-ups in bluegrass bands. She played beyond her years then and is spectacular now. She recently started a band with some other young folks calling themselves the Drop Dead Darlings. 

 

Then it was off to the Louie Bluie Festival in LaFollette, TN. This is a wonderful festival held in honor of one of the most talented and unique individuals from East Tennessee, Howard "Louie Bluie" Armstrong, a black fiddle and mandolin player. I was honored to be invited back to this festival with The Lonetones. For more about this, check out The Lonetones website

 

 

After that, Steph and I took our pop-up camper and three kids and headed to the Jammin' At Hippie Jack's Americana Music Festival in middle Tennessee. It was beautiful weather for camping and we got to hear some great music Saturday evening. We woke up Sunday to do a Kidstuff show at 11AM. Forgetting that there was a time change, we showed up an hour early wondering where everybody was. 

As part of the Kidstuff show (which I hope to air on WDVX soon) I featured the Pinklets (two eleven-year-olds and a nine-year-old) who just happened to be camping with us. As usual, they were a big hit playing their own instruments and doing their original material.

Hi Peter,First off I want to tell you that this is a wonderfully wrettin piece that has really made me think and that your images are also quite stellar to boot. Now, I can't totally relate to you as I'm positive that I haven't been shooting as long as you have, but the reason why I continue to shoot is for a couple of reasons.I'm visually impaired, so due to my disability, I have a burning urge to create better photos. And still, I've accepted the fact that 1 out of every thousand that I shoot will be amazing. And working my way towards getting that one amazing image by reteaching myself certain things and remembering what I've learned from past mistakes makes it all worth it. I'm not a machine gun shooter, I try to be as efficient as I can. But this undying urge and my passion for creating a connection to people through my photos is what keeps me shooting.-Chris GampatLead Writer, BHInsights
