I have been very fortunate in attending two fantastic world renowned music festivals.
One being The Port Fairy Folk Festival (which also features in my blog.) The other is The Byron Bay Blues and Roots Festival that is held in New South Wales each year at Easter.
While there I was organised a Media Pass which before a show allowed me to be escorted to the photographers pit at the front of stage to photograph a band for their first three songs.
One year Crosby, Stills and Nash were playing and put on a great show. I remember well when I was younger at parties held by the older generation, they were often played and always livened up proceedings. When at their concert David Crosby noticed me singing along in between photos and loving their show. He stood right in front of me and posed for this great portrait. Its a photo that I cherish greatly and do thank him for giving me the opportunity to take it.
The other photos are of Seasick Steve and his drummer and as you can see from the photos they were going off. Ziggy Marley, Bob Marley's son was also there with other great acts such as Michele Shocked and Steve Earle. Fantastic!
