honey-sweet may.

Standard

“at last came the golden month of the wild folk–

honey-sweet May, when the birds come back,

and the flowers come out,

and the air is full of the sunrise scents and songs of the dawning year.”

― samuel scoville jr.

the hill is alive with the sounds of music

went to the 4th annual water hill music fest, held the first sunday of each may

Image

in a neighborhood filled with artists, musicians, and eccentrics of the highest order, music rules the day

Image

founded In 2011, Paul Tinkerhess (folksman, craftsman, businessman) to spotlight the cohesive personality of the neighborhood as well as its musicians, this un-sponsored event follows only one rule: at least one member of each performing band must reside in water hill.

so excited to see my very talented carpool mate create some jazz with the neighbors

Image

every kind of music and settings and audience members were represented

Image

all in the front yards, back yards, decks and gardens of their homes

Image

people of all ages were welcome to participate

Image

friends bonded together by their music

Image

and a community bonded together by their sounds

Image

and many joined into the drum circle

Image

and they were from all walks of life

Image

and everyone joined in to support the day

Image

and many saw music that was new to them and old to others

Image

and people came on foot, on bike, and by car to sit and listen and take it all in

Image

and everyone had so much fun

Image

and the maypole dance was the perfect way to welcome in the season 

“Music acts like a magic key, to which the most tightly closed heart opens.”
