Charlie Musselwhite in Portland - great concert, lousy photos

It's too bad. This was with the old camera, but the concert was memorable. Charlie Musselwhite played the Portland Waterfront Blues Festival by the Willamette River on July 1, 2005. You can see how crowded it wasn't, and how close we were standing. I only hope to hear him again, and maybe this time with a better camera. I would have linked to someone else's photos from that concert, but I didn't find any. The music was incredible. We were spellbound. Scroll down and click on an image. The pix get slightly better and you can kinda see Charlie if you blow up the image.

He appeared to be enjoying himself - playing for the love of playing - and that is always the key that makes a concert for me.
