What a beautiful day to be out and about in Seattle! I took the bus downtown to Folklife at Seattle Center and joined the tie dyed throngs to listen to music made with every conceivable instrument from a jaw bone to a wash tub. Of course the usual fiddles, mandolins, banjos, and dulcimers were also in abundance. I even mustered enough voice to sing with the Sacred Harp singers. It was good to see old friends and join them in harmony. And when I couldn't stand the incessant bagpipes and percussion one minute more I headed into Belltown and got myself a much needed haircut; thanks to the gift certificate I bought at Sanislo's auction a couple weeks back.
