The Boston Summer Arts Weekend is a three-day festival of public art and music, much of it free.
I attended several events, and yesterday went mid-day to the main event area, in Copley Plaza.
Sharon Shannon was playing on the main stage, and was excellent.
I wandered to the nearby Public Garden for a while; it was lovely, as usual.
Professor World Band was busking on the lawn, and drawing a crowd.
My intent was to stay for a while; Suzanne Vega was the headliner for a free concert at dusk.
I headed back to Copley Plaza.
The secondary stage was odd: They'd drained the Plaza fountain to create a recessed area. But it worked well.
The Luminarium Dance Troupe performed an elaborate modern dance.

Alas, just as happened for the 4th of July fireworks, the weather did not cooperate. A huge storm moved in, stopping the outdoor performances, and scattering the crowd.
But it was nice while it lasted!
