Run Vermont had a huge turnout for this year’s First Run! Maybe it had something to do with the temps in the 30′s and no weather to speak of. An estimated 900 runners of all ages showed up, many in costumes, all with smiles.
I know it was warm out… but running in bare feet in January? Brrrrrr!
When the final runners came through, the police trail car was playing music through the loudspeaker and people were dancing and skipping their way towards the finish line.
Nice job everyone! Thanks, Run Vermont, for hosting another great race. SkiPix.com will have all of the photos available in a few days.
This past weekend, Rich Price celebrated the release of his 4th solo album, Moonlight Breaks, with a show at Burlington’s Black Box Theater. This was my first visit to the theater and I didn’t know what to expect. It’s a small, black (aptly named, eh?) room with moderately steeply sloping seats. Every seat in the house has a clear view of the stage and the acoustics are good. It’s an excellent place to see a show like this.
As a way of celebrating, he invited a very talented cast of musicians to perform with him including Jeff Deveau, Clint Bierman, Sean Preece, Jeff Vallone, Peter Day, Brian Chartrand, and Greg Naughton. The night started out with a more acoustic singer/songwriter style set that mixed new and old music. After a quick break, the band returned to play an upbeat mix of songs ending the night with two powerful encores.
if you haven’t had a chance to listen to Rich’s music yet, you owe it to yourself to give him a listen.
Maybe I’m getting old, but I seem to be taking a lot of photos of kids at live music shows. This next one was taken this summer at Nectar’s – it was his first show!
If this subset of photos isn’t enough, there are some more photos from the show on my SmugMug site.
Thanks for a great show and an excellent album, Rich!
