what are the ties that bind people together? with this crew, it began with a drumkit bought for $5 in 2008. that led to finding a jam space, which against all odds we still have to this day, 780 weekly meetings later, the center of gravity that holds us in a shared orbit. my attendance has been spotty since moving out to the country, but i go back when i can, and this weekend the 4Shadows convened here in Tahuya, where the weather complied as we made a different kind of music: one of a cappella conversation, crescendoes of laughter, and caesuras of awe as a squadron of dragonflies protected us from mosquitoes and meteors streaked the night sky like flourishes from a conductor's baton. Shadowfest MMXXIII!
