Victorian Party in Sweetgrass

Get buttoned up neck to toes and set your compasses for the Sweetgrass Victorian Party
was written on the invitation. When we arrived Gany was just playing on the harpsichord. A musical instrument played by means of a keyboard. It produces sound by plucking a string when a key is pressed. The harpsichord was widely used in Renaissance and Baroque music. During the late 18th century it gradually disappeared from the musical scene with the rise of the fortepiano. But in the 20th century it made a resurgence, used in historically informed performance of older music, in new (contemporary) compositions, and in popular culture.

After Gany's concert DJ Frankie took over with his spinning tunes.

Here are a few pictures I made. (they less sharp than when I used the Phoenix viewer. So I will have to check the settings of the Firestorm viewer that I use now.)
Ganymede made the picture of the winners.
