CT River Museum Summer 2020 Concert Series Jul 16 – Sep 17, 2020

In Summer 2020 I volunteered to start doing event photography for the CT River Museum in Essex. The "Shanties and Sails" series are weekly on Tuesdays. These are a one hour concert on the lawn followed by the artist joining a limited number of guests for a socially-distanced evening river cruise on the Onrust, a re-creation of the Dutch vessel the explorer Adriaen Block built in 1614. The weekly "Thursdays On The Dock" series are two-hour concerts that coincide with the Village of Essex's "Alfresco Thursdays" where shops, galleries, and restaurants stay open late.
