You Gotta Have An Angle...

We photographers are always looking for a different angle.

Here is the view the performers had on Sunday at Bowen's Island.

"Rollin'" Bob Margolin and his band were the headliners at Blues On The Dock and the dock was pretty crowded.

A Stono River breeze helped cool things down.

I noticed one of the screens was missing at the end of the pier so I walked down and stuck my camera in to see how the audience looked to the performers. Neat!

The whole Sunday Piccolo Spoleto Festival show was put together by Andy "Smoky" Weiner, local blues harmonica demon.

He and some pals opened the show and sat in with the Margolin band during a set.

Smoky was smokin' as usual and it was a music-filled afternoon.

From 1973-1980 Margolin traveled with Chicago Blues legend Muddy Waters.

He formed his own band in 1980 and has won many awards - and fans - since.

His CD is titled "In North Carolina" and the band played tracks from it during the performance.

Matt Hill, his young sidekick, was energetic on bass, guitar and vocals. And threw in some great Chuck Berry dance moves.

Their drummer Chuck Cotton was laying down a steady beat.

Smoky opened the show with Nature Boy Nik on guitar and Chuck "The Cat" Morris on harp.

As the sun sank slowly in the west....another fine day ended on a musical note.

It's the summer outdoor season and Bowen's Island has food and fun on the menu.
