A group of musicians playing at a local community event. Above: John Cohen founder member of the New Lost City Ramblers and famous for his music, art, movies and photographs including iconic photographs of Bob Dylan.

Fiddler. It looks as if this shot was posed, but it wasn’t. He was actually playing at the time and I happened to catch him looking directly at the camera.

Another fiddler. Great expression!

It was quite difficult to get a decent picture of this banjo player, which was a pity as I’ve always been fond of the banjo. She looked down a long – I don’t know if this was because she knew I was taking pictures and didn’t want to be photographed, or whether this was just her style of playing.

Somehow I missed the other musician: a string bass player.
