Live Music by: Tom May, folksinger, author, radio producer, playing from 6-8pm.
"Writing and playing his own music, and eloquently interpreting the songs of others; sharing through his music history, romance, and his travels with audiences throughout the U.S., Canada and overseas in concert halls and clubs; hosting and performing weekly on the national radio/TV program River City Folk; that is just a glimpse at some of the highlights of Tom May's more than 40 years as a professional folksinger.
Originally from the plains of Nebraska, Tom has called Toronto, Boston, St. Louis, Omaha, and since 1996, the Pacific Northwest, home. On twelve and six string guitars, he accompanies his baritone voice with intricate stylings not often heard in folk music. Stories, humor, and occasionally even the Irish pennywhistle introduce the songs featured in his concerts.
Over 40 years as a professional musician has led Tom May to describe the "true wealth of the music business--the friends that you made and the folks you are lucky enough to have a chance to play for." He has lived a life performing, writing, and promoting this music that he truly believes is "music that makes a difference."
The people who hear Tom are captivated by his unforgettable voice, evocative melodies, the history and romance in his songs, and a warmth that gives his performance a degree of musicality and professionalism unsurpassed in acoustic music." Check out Tom's website for more! http://tommayfolk.com
Featured September Artist: Glenn Miller, landscape photographer
"Glenn Miller is a retired entrepreneur and award winning photographer:
I have been an avid photographer since age 14. Retirement has allowed me the time and resources to study the art of digital photography. Much has changed since the days of film. We can see the results of our efforts immediately not having to wait days or weeks for film developing. Manipulation of the nuances of brightness and color are far easier and more precise than anything that was possible using dark room techniques (although I still process my pictures in a “dark room”)
Even given the ease which we are able to process today's photographs, the real proof is printing large format photographs. Most of the prints presented here are printed on a large format Epson printer using premium luster photographic paper. Each photograph has been printed numerous times in a smaller version to adjust for the various tonal differences found when translating from a 27” computer monitor display to any print media. Each type of printer and print media will have subtle differences that must be accounted for to get satisfactory results.
The gold standard of photographic printing today is done using either acrylic or metal prints, both are expensive and have their own merits and drawbacks. I have chosen traditional print for the bulk of my work simply because it is primarily for my own learning and enjoyment.
I hope to inspire your wanderlust for the scenic beauty of the Pacific Northwest with my photography. All my photographs can be custom printed and framed to your specifications up to 40” X 60”." For more information please see his website: https://glennmiller.smugmug.com
