It was also a Peace Concert as well as a Washington Blues Society (WBS) event. Seattle Peace Concerts and the WBS co-sponsor this event each August. So at an event like this everyone got along, including me.
Now I could have had my personal conversations with a friend interrupted continuously by someone who never says "pardon me," and implies that I am not a human being but some stray dog, and I still would not get mad on a day like this. I would never say "Hey: don't disrespect me like this, and stop being so rude…!" That is not something I would ever say or think of saying on such a day. Peace among everyone there was important to me.
Dean Haitani of Australia then put on a show and I was impressed by many things including his slide guitar work.
I got an interesting photo of her when I was focusing on her from the side of the stage 20 feet from where she was. Some divas act like they hate those with cameras but Duffy has fun with them. She ran over to put her face in the lens of the camera and I got a picture with an amazing artistic perspective that covers a whole page or a whole computer screen with just her mouth, her microphone, and some hair over both of them.
Duffy did three encores and the audience was begging for more as her ride took her away (picture hundreds running behind the vehicle trying to talk her into more encores.)
