Musikfest, Day 8: Singer-Songwriters, Full Bands, and Plenty of Laughs

Dark clouds were moving into Bethlehem around the time that I was able to get ready to head down for the second Friday of Musikfest. My original plan was to walk straight down to the Red Stag Pub Liederplatz stage to catch the end of Dina Hall’s set, and work the North Side before heading over to The Ice House for Night 1 of the Lehigh Valley with Love Comedyplatz at 8:45.

Then, as I walked out the door, the skies opened up, thwarting my plans to walk down, camera in tow.
