2005_VA_CSN_05081328Wolf Trap -- Crosby, Stills & Nash
2003_VA_Doobies_0306305Wolf Trap -- Doobie Brothers
The Doobie Brothers have been through a number of staff changes. Personally, the songs I remember most by them were sung by Michael McDonald who I saw solo in Nashville maybe six years before -- he's no longer with the band. They currently consist of Tom Johnston (guitar/vocals), Patrick Simmons...
2001_VA_Huey_Lewis_0108051Wolf Trap -- Huey Lewis
I happened to have my camera with me because of the donor event and I decided to snap a shot at the end of the performance. This was the first concert at Wolf Trap I'd tried this with other than Vince Gill the previous year. In theory, you're never allowed to take pictures (Wolf Trap policy) but if...
2006_VA_Ian_Anderson_06072635Wolf Trap -- Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull) w/orchestra
2003_VA_Firstman_0307013Wolf Trap -- Joe Firstman
Joe was Sheryl Crow's opening act. I wasn't expecting much but he was damned good! Afterward, he was signing copies of his EP "Wives Tales" (which they charged all of $5 for) and that's where these pictures were taken.
2003_VA_Loggins_0307212Wolf Trap -- Kenny Loggins
This was a wonderful concert. He didn't look like I remembered him but he sang well and enjoyed himself as much as we did. He even had couches and such on the stage that he used and for a number of songs sat on the edge of the stage with his feet dangling in the pit.
2005_VA_MCC_05060911Wolf Trap -- Mary Chapin Carpenter
2003_VA_Meat_0309072Wolf Trap -- Meat Loaf
This was a concert that allowed photography and, stupidly, I didn't ask in advance. It's weird because there's always a policy of no photographs but most performers really don't care. But if you follow the rules, you don't do anything...
1999_VA_PPM_99080617Wolf Trap -- Peter, Paul and Mary
2007_VA_Sam_Yahel_0706071Wolf Trap -- Sam Yahel Organ Trio
This was the opening act for Steely Dan.
2003_VA_Crow_0307012Wolf Trap -- Sheryl Crow
Sheryl had been a backup singer for a number of superstars before finally getting her own album together. Before it could be released, she decided to drop it since it didn't reflect the sound she wanted. She figured that this was the end of her career and, after a bought of depression, joined a group of...
2007_VA_Steely_Dan_07060742Wolf Trap -- Steely Dan
2003_VA_Tritt_0308216Wolf Trap -- Travis Tritt
Tritt gave a good performance and you were allowed to take photographs (which made me wish I'd brought a better camera). He did a tribute to his friend Merle Haggard who had died recently. At one point, he sang "Sweet Home Alabama," which has become a redneck anthem. (Keep in mind that Neil Young wrote...
1998_VA_Gill_9808308Wolf Trap -- Vince Gill and Chely Wright
2003_VA_Wolf_0308148Wolf Trap -- "Barber of Seville" opera
Once a year, Wolf Trap lets me come to a free performance and throws in a wonderful dinner. This was the first (and probably only) opera I'd seen. It was pleasant and the stage was nicely done but I preferred the cartoon more. I enjoyed the backstage meet and greet with some of the stars though.
1998_VA_Arlo_9811134Wolf Trap @ The Barns -- Arlo Guthrie
