Music at the Alberta Street Fair - Last Thurday of the month

I loved the music. There were street performers everywhere.


This couple was delightful.


This woman was soooo classy. Beautiful performance.



This group was a lot of fun. Brandi has a video of him playing on her blog.


Great face.


I like the way this shot came out. :)


Another delightful duo. I am always amazed at the sounds they can get out of a saw blade.


The street music and crafts seem to compliment each other so well.


I LOVE Digeredoos!



We saw a big crowd up ahead. Heard this amazing music. I had to get up close and see what was going on.
Capoeira! This was the first time I had seen it performed. WoW!!! so much energy.
I managed to get some Flip video.

It looked like an impromptu dance...just fantastic...I am so glad you were able to capture it for those of us who had never seen it!!! Now I have to go research!

I had heard of this- but had never seen or listened to it.

The music was fantastic- and the crowd joined with the chanting/singing.

The dancers/martial artists were amazing.
The energy levels were wonderful.
They had the whole street involved. :)

What fun, Zeb! I really must get out more often...I may have to take the last Thursday in September off and head to Alberta Street.

Your photos and video absolutely captured the joyful energy of the street fair.

Thanks so much for sharing this!

That was great--new dancing for me, too. Looks like you have to be quite flexible. Loved all your pix from Portland and the flowers were so in bloom. Thanks for sharing.
