With my band The Demi-Monde, I led a procession and invocation to the sun outside Hundred Years Gallery, at the recent solstice weekend, followed by a concert inside the gallery. I had made a totem-pole sculpture, and wrote a poem especially for the occasion: “Long Live the Sun”, which we used in the procession. In the concert, we also performed another new piece called “King of the Corn”, based on the traditional song “John Barleycorn Must Die”.
Guest performers were Rotten Bliss (aka: cellist / vocalist Jasmine Pender) and Quimper, an electronic duo. All photos by Mary Lemley
