Mother Nature is the artist. I just collect the memories…

Local and Live!

Bishop.  It’s a tiny little town nestled quietly between the western slope of the White/Inyo Mountains that border California and Nevada, and the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, which separate Coastal California from the rest of the U.S.  We have about 4,000 full-time, year-round residents, a total of 4 stop lights, 3 bars, a grocery store, and a K-Mart.  We don’t even have a Wal-Mart…

But one thing we do have is a great appreciation for all genres of live music, and community events.  This weekend was the Inyo County Council for the Arts Main St. Festival.  Part of the festival is the ability of local artists to display their works along the Main St. Promenade.  Another aspect is the great live music scattered about town.  This is about the music…

Faded 

Pete and Neal.  These guys were a lot of fun.  They played a mix of folk, country, and blues, and each song had a story about the History of the Owen’s Valley.  It was really a nice afternoon.

Special Thanks to Fiddlin’ Pete Watercott for allowing me to photograph the event, and post these pictures.  Great Job, Gentlemen!
