Behind the Scenes at the Dickens Fair: Music and Musicians

Music plays a big part in setting the scene at the Dickens fair.

Here are the carolers rehearsing. (And yes, I came home and listened to Sting’s version of The Angel Gabriel From Heaven Came.)

The fair has been so well thought out. There are little spaces for all sorts of activities. The Bruno Academy of Music is actually a space where performers can take a break in public view. Musicians sat around taking a break between sets and they welcomed me in to join them.

    I like the effect of the brown ink. The black is more dramatic in a way, but for me that brown makes the scene more accessible, if that makes sense. I feel like I’m entering in. Great journal-logue series on the fair.
