A couple of weekends ago, I joined The Sills for their very first photo shoot. They had just recorded a CD and were working on the finishing touches – such as photographs for their cover and booklet. The photo shoot was done by a professional photographer, and I enjoyed having a chance to watch her, while also taking some pictures of my own.
The photo shoot took place at a farm in the beautiful WI countryside, just a few miles outside of Madison and it was windy enough for hair, jackets and hats to fly everywhere!
The Sills (from left to right): Chris (banjo), Henrietta (upright bass), Jim (guitar), Claire (vocals), Dave (drums) and Blair (guitar & vocals).
One of the settings: the old barn. We all agreed it would make a wonderful space for coffee shop (of course there would be regular live concerts with The Sills!).
Dave playing the Conga.
Two natural talents :) What a fun day it was!! The Sills are playing at Mother Fools on 4/28 (7 p.m.) and at the Brink Lounge on 5/27 (check Wurst Times schedule). If you’re in Madison, it would be great to see you there!
