I've had the privilege of photographing events for The Gilmore for some years now and always enjoy the challenge of finding the one or two moments in a musician's performance that tell the story. For the 2016 Gilmore Keyboard Festival, I photographed 32 events in 18 days. Here is a moment from each.
