“The atmosphere was very
relaxed, with the audience
participating in the banter
between songs and singing
along, especially  with the
rousing finale. It was a very
pleasant way to bring the
2010 summer concerts to
an end.”

-Library Director

-Library Director
“Going to the State Fair?
Like music? Step off the
beaten headliner path and

the kind of thing where
people wander by and stay,
spellbound, through the
last song!”
