We set out this afternoon with our picnic dinner and chairs for the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and Howe Meadow. We are going to listen to Music In The Meadow and the featured artist tonight is Alex Bevan.
They had lots of activities in the meadows to keep children occupied prior to the concert including bubbles, hoola hoops and musical crafts.
One of the kids came in wearing a top hat and a purple Hogwarts shirt. He looked a lot like Harry Potter too!
We enjoyed listening to Alex Bevan sing and play the guitar. Alex has made a name for himself singing everything from folk to folk rock and pop. His hit song "Skinny Little Boy" which he sang tonight gave him some recognition. He also performed on the air on Cleveland's WMMS Radio with a band called Alex Bevan and the Buzzard Band. He performed in the mid 1970s with an acoustic trio consisting of two guitars and electric bass, and opened for such acts as Seals and Crofts, The Doobie Brothers and Hall & Oates.
While we were listening to Alex Bevan, we also decided that we were able to see a LOT of wildlife in the park. Well, they weren't too wild but there were tons of dogs of all sizes and types in the audience. I took a few pictures of some of them.
