Brit Floyd @ Britt Festival (Jacksonville, Oregon – June 20, 2015)

Last night Brit Floyd (a British Pink Floyd cover band) kicked off the beginning of the 2015 Britt season. The show was fantastic. More photos coming soon.

Brit Floyd was the first, of the five Pink Floyd cover bands that I’ve seen, to play any post-Roger Waters Pink Floyd tunes.

The Avett Brothers @ Britt

Last night was the final performance for the 2014 Britt season and featured Creedence Clearwater Revisited. They put on a fantastic show. But today’s photos are from Sunday’s sold out show. Here is the set list for you Avett Brothers fans:

Tori Amos @ Britt Festivals 2014

Some people are surprised when I tell them I am a Tori Amos fan. They think she doesn’t fit in with my usual musical tastes I suppose, but if they gave her a chance they’d find that her irreverent and edgy lyrics may actually be interesting to them as well.

On top of her lyrics, she has Led Zeppelin playing before, between, and after the show for the audience. Not your typical “pop” artist. Nor do most of my metalhead buddies probably realize that she has covered Slayer’s “Raining Blood.”

I’ve wanted to see her live performance for almost 20 years now, but she has never played in Southern Oregon… until this past Saturday night.

Tori Amos setlist 7/19/14 (Jacksonville, Oregon)

Her show was amazing. Unfortunately, I couldn’t take photos after the first two songs so I don’t have any of the lighting that took affect beginning with about the fifth song. Nor do I have any of her playing under the starry sky that came out near the end of her set. Maybe she’ll come back and let me shoot the last two songs next time. 😉

Today is day three of three for Jacksonville’s annual Oktoberfest. I went yesterday for the first time ever. I met up with my BFF from 6th grade. We hadn’t seen each other in over 27 years. Good times.

Brandi Carlile @ Britt with a Blue Moon

Every once in a blue moon a night can be very special AND feature an actual blue moon. No, the color of the moon wasn’t blue (although I took this photo when blue light from the stage was bathing the audience). But on August 31, 2012, when Brandi Carlile played at Britt Festivals in Jacksonville, we had our second full moon of the month which is what a blue moon is. The next calendar blue moon won’t be until July of 2015. Hopefully Brandi will be back at Britt on that evening too.

The Blank Notes @ Britt Festivals

Britt Festivals in Jacksonville, Oregon added a new stage last year called the Table Rock City Stage. Usually a local act plays on it from the time the gates open until about 15 minutes before the main performers play on the main stage. This past Friday night a Jacksonville, all-girls band of 13-year olds called The Blank Notes played before The Barr Brothers and Brandi Carlile. My friend who I was with was their music teacher in the Jacksonville School District for many years before they went into middle school so she was very proud and for good reason.
