I photograph many different live music performances, mostly "Blues" music. I spend a lot of time at Blues Festivals. Earlier this summer, Famous Dave's had their Famous Dave's BBQ and Blues Festival in downtown Minneapolis.
One band that plays Zydeco music, Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band, asked some of the ladies to get on stage with them to dance. One lady who I don't know was dancing over by Chubby at the start, then Earl Sally grabbed this lady and put the "Washboard" on her and started to play.
Well, while I was in the middle of the crowd/dancers at the closing ceremony drum and dance jam at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival I spotted her. I took a couple photographs of her then took a couple more behind me. When I turned around again to go speak with her she was gone. I was hoping to say hi, but I never saw her again.
Here she is on Saturday, 09-24-11 at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival.
Here she is on stage with the washboard along with some other ladies. There is also a YouTube video that's around...but the audio is terrible. If I find it I put a link up, but turn your volume down low.
