MUSICAL SHOWCASE – Perform and enjoy tunes of all kinds with great folks  

For 16 years, Geauga Park District’s Maple Town Tune Traders have shared a variety of music at The West Woods Nature Center the fourth Thursday of each month.


Today’s Tune Traders are a fine showcase of music – blues, country, classical, vintage pop, Celtic, traditional and modern folk music, and even a bit of rock – with participants playing, singing or simply enjoying as audience. All genres, instruments and skill levels are welcome.


This spring’s scheduled sessions are May 25 and June 22. If you’d like to participate as a musician or an audience member, please register at or 440-286-9516. From 7 to 9:30 p.m. each of these nights, participating singers and musicians take turns, round-robin style, presenting tunes for others to join in.


For novice musicians, this format also provides great chances to watch and learn, play along and hone skills with a supportive audience as you work up to a more polished level. And for student musicians preparing for an upcoming recital or performance, Tune Traders provides a gentle, encouraging audience, with applause and praise guaranteed from people who celebrate young musicianship.


Audience members, meanwhile, just enjoy a relaxing evening of well-rendered music. Admission is free, the setting is informal, the chairs are comfortable, snacks (contributions welcome) are delicious, and humor abounds.


The West Woods Nature Center is located at 9465 Kinsman Road (Route 87) in Russell Township. For more information, contact the Tune Traders’ naturalist host, Denise Wolfe, at or 440-226-2877.
