I've driven through a lot of storm clouds over the past several years, most of them in Saskatchewan, between Lloydminster and Saskatoon. I posted prairie storm photographs last year on this blog and am posting more tonight. We arrived in Saskatoon this evening just ahead of the storm.
I spent a short time at a free jazz concert, part of the Sasktel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival and left when the rain started. I was very impressed by The Jack Semple Band. The Festival features excellent local and visiting musicians including Dave Brubeck, John Scofield, Los Lobos, Monty Alexander, Pink Martini, Sonny Rose, and the Neville Brothers. The free stage was situated on the river bank near the Bessborough Hotel, one of the finest locations I've seen for a music festival.
Tomorrow we'll drive to Regina for a weekend of music and relaxation with friends.
