My annual pilgrimage to the Lowell Folk Festival took place this past weekend. One of the more interesting groups to perform were the taiko dojo drummers from San Francisco.
One of the audience members sitting in front and to the left of where I was captured this video and posted it to YouTube. The piece is called "Many Sides' and is performed with an interlude during which a lion dance is performed.

There’s no wifi, points don’t matter
But before each meal
We pause to give thanks
Fallen tree diverted the trail
Along shaded rail line
Where folks gave thanks
Infant music box conjures
Ice cream, grass stained fun
And fire flies giving thanks
Intense or cursive the
Fire circle discussion
Solves enough to give thanks
Joy of sewing triumph fades
Quickly with news of three
Sleeping so well to give thanks
Juggling cans, crossing over
Monkey bridge where laurel
Line the path saying thanks

Friday night, summer time, and a good time to make some beer. The 'Band of Brewers' gathered at Deja Brew for a set of six kettles. A good mix of some favorites and some new ones.
Blueberry Ale = A delicious ale. It smells good, tastes good and finishes clean
Death Star II: Return of the Citra = A new IPA, so new it isn't listed on the DejaBrew webpage
Lobster Claw = A highly aromatic barley wine. Very Potent.
Nessie Scotch Ale = So new, it isn't listed on the DejaBrew webpage
Sammy's Summer = Modeled after a popular summer ale from Boston
Stunner = A creamy British Pub style pale ale “stunning colour”
We'll be back in three weeks to bottle and bring home to enjoy!
