I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the local musicians who performed on the West End Stage at the Crawford County Fair.
I, as were the audiences, was impressed with their talents and readiness to perform on the West End Stage without any compensation even during inclement weather. Without their enthusiasm, there would not have been the quality instrumental and vocal music on the Crawford County Fair’s West End Stage each afternoon.
I’ve received numerous positive comments and compliments from the listening audiences and other fairgoers. It was heartwarming to see audience members singing along and even dancing on a few occasions. They were obviously enjoying the performances on stage to the fullest.
I was amazed and grateful for all the musician’s dedication, energy and generosity of their time and talents. Their efforts certainly contributed to the success of the 2019 Crawford County Fair.
