I didn’t know much about Uriah Heep heading into Tuesday night. All I knew is that I signed up for a concert photography class through ArtsQuest, and that the “final exam” was the chance to photograph the band during their Musikfest Café performance that night.
I spent a couple of hours at the festival at Scott and Riverside Parks along the Delaware River, and had the opportunity to enjoy sights and sounds that included live music, unique hairstyles, interesting talents, and a little bit of street art.
On Friday, I went to Levitt Pavilion at SteelStacks with plans of seeing classical hip hop duo Black Violin, who have gained popularity as they periodically visit the Lehigh Valley with a live show that successfully merges just about every genre known to man.
Unfortunately, I would come to find out that the duo re-scheduled for Sunday, September 10. However, the people at SteelStacks still gave us a show.
When you hear the sounds of Billy Bauer Band nearby, it’s hard not to stick around a while and enjoy the quartet’s bright brand of acoustic rock. That’s what I did on Thursday night — during a festival with so many stages running at any given time, I dedicated a full set to enjoying this Bethlehem-based band.
If you’re heading to Musikfest — or, heading back to Musikfest — this weekend, you might notice a big, inflatable structure. One that appears palatial in its stature, and looks like it would be fun to venture inside.
A rainy Monday was no match for the mighty Scott Marshall & Marshall’s Highway, who kicked off the Americaplatz stage on Day 4 of Musikfest.
The local country rockstar and his band of brothers brought a soulful, spirited performance to Musikfest rooted in the band’s four tenets: faith, hope, music, and love. Ever the storyteller, Marshall shared the tales behind the tunes, drawing in and engaging the audience through popular originals like “‘Shine” and “Hope on the Cross.”
It was my pleasure to spend the evening on rain-soaked ground with the other people who braved the elements and capture the moments. Hope you enjoy!
I went down to Musikfest on Saturday, looking forward to seeing The Amish Outlaws in particular. There was much more in store, however — and, as you can see from the photos, I even ended up onstage by the end of the night.
A little bit of rain on Friday couldn’t stop the folks at Touchstone Theatre from putting on their long-awaited Jakopa’s Punch Processional.
Before spending some time at the Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites Blueberry Festival, I spent the early part of my day at SteelStacks to capture a few photos of the Second Annual VetFest.
Saturday was a beautiful day for fresh fruit, family fun, and an afternoon of live music — and Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites had just what the doctor ordered.
