Celebrate the Summer Solstice At Make Music Boston Day!

Spend some time tomorrow going to free music events around Boston at Make Music Boston! This is a fabulous celebration of the City’s diverse music scene.

I was privileged to photograph the event the past two years and am sad to miss it this year (because I do not live in the area at this point). I made a number of friends from some of the performances I saw in addition to hearing their wonderful music.

One of my personal favorites was the Bucket Drumming – you can participate or stand back and enjoy. I highly recommend that event.
