Country singer Scott Perry may have hit it big with a record deal in Nashville, but that didn’t stop him from giving a farewell performance in his hometown.

Perry and six other local bands jammed for hundreds of Del Norters at the Rockin’ at Rowdy music festival on Saturday. Perry later performed at Lucky 7 Casino, his final gig in Del Norte County. He said he will be recording with Big Buck Records in Nashville next month.

Photographer turns Del Norte into fantasyland

One of Nash’s creations bursts with color. Submitted
The first thing one notices when they step into Adrien Nash’s Hiouchi home is the number of knickknacks that fill it.

One antique cabinet is the abode of wizards, dragons and clowns. Nash has devoted a room to pirate memorabilia including replicas of swords, axes and pistols and production stills from the 1999 Jodie Foster movie “Anna and the King.”

Outside across the lawn and through a hedge overgrown with ivy is his fairy garden dotted with frogs, toads, elves and a fishing boy. A crocodile lounges in a stream.
