This is a sketch of an idea I would like to see more of: exploring castles as an entertainment. I know Queen Elizabeth II allows vistors to tour Buckingham Palace while she and her husband move temporarily to the Holyrood House castle in Scotland. I also think Vanderbilt castle in Tennessee is open to the public. This sketch is my rendition of an actual castle in Normandy, France. I drew this in ink and then painted it with watercolor, and signed it, photographed it, uploaded it, and posted it to this blog of mine which is intended to be a public service site for information on music, film, live, entertainment that appears to be family friendly and fun.Copyrighted art and photos and my words. The information I post here is from articles sent to my inbox and I am merely helping publicize them, and I include my sources.

Happened on 9/29/15 so mark calendar for next year: "Debuting on a farm in Franklin, Tennessee, Pilgrimage Music and Culture Festival was a whole new breed of music fest. Focusing strictly on the genre of Southern music— artists from the South or with Southern musical influences, the festival was a breath of fresh air in a world oozing with Electronic Dance Music.
The festival had a much more mellow vibe than any I had ever attended, partly for their lineup and partly for their “family friendly” theme. Parents brought their children to see classics such as Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow, and Weezer, as well as ride on a new wave of music with bands such as The Lone Bellow, Will Hoge and Birmingham’s own John & Jacob and Saint Paul and the Broken Bones.
