Mythcon XIX, 1988
Photo by Brian Attebery
At Mythcon XIX, in Berkeley, in 1988, a group of very brave people
performed the Kesh dance-masque "The Plumed Water," from the text in
my Always Coming Home. This picture is of the musicians. The
drummer, wearing typical Kesh clothing, is the poet Ire of Sinshan.
The player of the houmbuta or great horn is the famous composer,
instrument-maker, and performer Tabit of Ashland.
If anyone can tell
me the names of the singers, one of whom holds a darbagatush or
handhitter, I will happily include them in this caption. The picture
was taken, and given to us, by Brian Attebery of Pocatello.
