2nd Concert of Crossroads series with Lynn Miles

Dan Nawrocki took these fantastic photos of the second edition of the NAC Presents Crossroads series with Lynn Miles. I am learning so much through this series. I love folk music and the raw and direct art of story telling and great melody writing. I equally love the art of improvising in its pure and true, raw form. In order to maintain integrity when collaborating in a cross-genre setting the key is to rebuild from the ground up - treat each song as a melody to be built upon with the strengths and personalities of the musicians in mind. 

Thanks to Lynn Miles, Roddy Ellias on guitar, John Geggie on bass and Greg Ritchie on drums who are willing to let go of their preconceptions of the norm, and make new music all over again.
