New “thebrigadoons.net” Website for “The Brigadoons”.

That we are HUGE fans of “The Brigadoons” is no secret given all the posts I have done about them and the many, many pictures and videos I have shared.

They have/had a “thebrigadoons.com” Website but it was ‘temperamental’ and not very topical.

So yesterday I set out to create a new one and I did. Took me about 2.5 hours which included getting the domain name (through WordPress) and deciding on a theme. That is what takes me the longest. Must have spend 40 minutes messing around with themes. Once I decided on the theme, WordPress’ ‘Motif’, is was a piece of cake. I enjoy doing FUN Websites like this. 

Well, they must like it BECAUSE they have now put this Website, “thebrigadoons.net“, on their Facebook page. See below. I am humbled but pleased. Happy to help them. We are very fond of them. Check out the Website. It will bring a smile to your face. Enjoy.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving.

Sunday, September 20, 2015,
3:30 pm performance at the Governor’s Lodge.

This was towards the end of the Sunday afternoon set — after Devanee’s stint.

While I have no compunction about parading my kids through the Web, I typically DO NOT divulge data about other kids, who I happen to photograph, unless I have explicit permission from their parents. But, I am sure many of you will work out who these two adorable — amazingly photogenic — belong to. To me they are THE NEXT GENERATION.

This was great. Now I know that there is a viable succession plan for my ALL TIME favorite Group. Given that 60% of the members are much younger than I, I am relying on this incarnation of ‘The Brigadoons‘ to regale me, yearly, at Loon, for at least another 15 years. And then … THE NEXT GENERATION.

Enjoy. Cherish. Savor.
This is PRECIOUS.

Sunday, September 20, 2015,
3:30 pm performance at the Governor’s Lodge.

This was “The Brigadoons” third performance that Sunday; their last at the 2015 ‘Games’ and their second that day at the Governor’s Lodge. We had started that day by going to their first performance at the Lodge and was wrapping up the day by going to this one — per my avowed belief that you can never get enough of listening to “The Brigadoons”. The morning gig was brilliant and this was as good. As is their wont it was different — this one more mellow and reflective, in keeping with the mood of the crowd. It had been a truly gorgeous day at Loon and everybody was sated and nicely chilled out. It was a good crowd and the pub above the stage was packed with an appreciative, and often vocal, crowd — and you can hear them on the video on this post.

John “Mr. Scotland” Carmichael, nearly unrecognizable in trousers, joined in, impromptu, for a song, from the back, and that was special. They should collaborate, on stage, more often. That was grand. And I will admit that this gig was very special to us. “The Brigadoons”, very kindly, let Devanee (14), do a song with them! This was a first for her and we will always remember this gig. Thank you, again, “The Brigadoons”.

I took a lot of pictures this time around too. In total I think I ended up with over 400 pictures of the “The Brigadoons” that Sunday. So I am going to share some with you.

I have ONE more extremely special set of pictures left. That was of “The Brigadoons — The Next Generation“. I will post those soon.

So for now, sit back, relax and enjoy these pictures.

Thank YOU “The Brigadoons”.

So that is 4 sets of pictures I have posted of “The Doons” from Loon. People might start getting the impression that I kind of like “The Doons”.

P.S., Danny told me that I would not be able to capture 5 pictures of him smiling. I think I have. SMILE

All the pictures taken with my new — and now sadly returned — Sony a77 Mk II. These pictures were among the 989 that disappeared from the card (fortunately, 3 days AFTER I had downloaded the images. That was what was scary and rattled me no end. I could have so easily lost these pictures. That is why I am getting a non-Sony camera.
