The Watts Family Band : Sassyfras Workshop 2012

Let's go down to the river in the morning
Let's rise up before the sun
Listen to the whispering waters,
Sing an anthem to the lord above

Let's go walk to the top of the mountain
Watch the sun creep up so slow
Golden light flooding the canyon
... flying, I don't glow
How pure and ... appears
So lovely in your ears
All that I could do, be an instrument for you, playing

Let's go find your whipping willow
See it cry it's tears for Christ
Lay our heads on the grassy pillow
All creation sings his mind
How pure and ... appears
So lovely in your ears
All that I could do, be an instrument for you, playing

How pure and ... appears
So lovely in your ears
All that I could do, 
How pure and ... appears
So lovely in your ears
All that I could do, be an instrument for you
Sing a song that's new, let my words be few, playing.

THE VESPERS

What a fun shoot we had with the lovely Watts Family.  It was a crisp COLD day at the workshop.  This was the first of 3 shoots that would be happening at the workshop, and it had rained all day.  Lollie and I were scrambling to put together a back up plan for it.  We were praying the rain would turn to snow, that it would go away, we did an anti rain dance, and the Lord heard our pleas, because the rain stopped just as the session was starting.  It was a miracle! 

Tenille, Chris Vada, Pacey, and Lana were just GEMS, and brought out the true homey, loving feeling of a family out on an adventure to bring the world music through their instruments.  Music, what a raw emotion filled language that we can all attach ourselves to, find resonance and meaning in it's notes, breathing life through each of us, by the simple fluctuation of sounds.  HOw blessed we all are to share the common bond of music.
