Saturday evening music

Friends very kindly took me to a lovely evening concert on the grounds
of the Grist Mill in Keremeos, - as a matter of fact the two performers from Silk Road
in North Vancouver played beautifully
in the outdoor kitchen used for demonstrations 
to an audience gathered under a huge and magnificent chestnut tree, sitting
on blankets or lawn chairs brought from home.

Two local wineries provided refreshment, and it was a lovely gathering
of mixed generations, - ancients as well as many of my children's peers, who
appear suddenly greying, middle-aged but still full of memories
of growing up on the Cawston Bench.
I can only give you a link to a small partial video of their performance
of a Turkish melody, but I hope you will enjoy it.

I have seen these two great performers in more sophisticated settings but
they played just as enthusiastically under the chestnut tree,
a wonderful eclectic mixture of Celtic, Asian and Folk music.
Such a satisfying event!

It is these sorts of outings that do the heart good Hildred.
