Algie Powers resides in Salt Lake City, Utah, where she runs a web design business.
She also enjoys writing music and shooting music performance videos.
"You know how it feels when you have the perfect gift for someone, and you can’t wait to give it to them? That’s how I feel after capturing the AMAZING performances at Durango on video, and putting them online for the world to see."
Note from Jack Hayford: In 2007 we began to realize how important it is to make and post videos on the web. So I got a couple little Flip cameras and started shooting showcases and panel discussions at the Expo. I quickly found out what a confining job it was going to be. It's a lot of showcases! Plus workshops and the concert. Too much for me!
Little did I know that the problem was already solved. While I was talking to our good friend Chuck Cannon, he mentioned that Algie Powers had video'd his workshop.
So in no time at all, Algie Powers was recruited to be our official videographer! If you are at the Expo (she's at every one!) and you perform, likely there will be a video of it. Just find the girl pictured above!
I do have to say though that I got hooked on that little Flip camera and still like some of our earliest videos. The one below of Rob Giles, I almost missed. I was going to step out and get something but Lisa Witty said to me, "you really should get this guy." So I turned around and turned on my Flip and got Rob Giles performing "You're Not Listening."
This performance by Rob in many ways is symbolic of the Expo over the years. At 2:10 in the video the stage lights finally come on...we don't always get it right away, but usually we get it. And what we get is usually very very good. Thank you to all who come, for your support and participation in the Expo.
Welcome Aboard Algie!!
