4 bands, 1 singer-songwriter to fill Chardon amphitheater with song
Enjoy five great musical acts this spring while resting your bones in the charming amphitheater outside Big Creek Park’s Meyer Center: Rebecca Wohlever on Saturday, May 18 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.; Chardon Polka Band on Saturday, June 1, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.; The Rust Buckets and Drake Hollow on Saturday, June 15, from 7 to 9 p.m.; and Humble G & the Afripeans on Saturday, June 29 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Rebecca Wohlever is a Geauga singer-songwriter whose songs were inspired by her own life, as well as emotional, social, and environmental issues that we face together. “What I hope for most is that something in this work will touch someone else in a positive way,” said Wohlever, who recorded her first album, “All the Sycamores” while pregnant with her third child.
Having started their act as students at Chardon High School in 2003, Chardon Polka Band has made a name for itself regionally by adding a colorful twist to the traditional genre of the polka, performing polka and modern hits in a trademark style.
The second show in June, two Chardon-based bands, The Rust Buckets and Drake Hollow, will provide an evening of original Americana music: a blend of folk, rock, country, blues, and other American music traditions.
Then count on Humble G & the Afripeans to wind up June with the violin’s European flavor fused with African drums to create a hybrid “Afripean” sound. This unique show is something we’ll tell you more about as the day they come to town approaches.
Refreshments will be served at each of these free shows at Big Creek Park, 9160 Robinson Road, Chardon Township, which all move indoors in inclement weather. Amphitheater viewing is wheelchair/stroller accessible. Call 440-286-9516 with questions.
