CLEARFIELD – Country music’s Kevin Sharp played to a crowd of true fans to close out day one of the two-day Country Jamin’ in the Valley music festival.
The group to which Sharp and others, such as Gisele, an Erie-based recording artist, Sean Patrick McGraw, of TV’s “Nashville Star,” and Pennsylvania’s own Smokin’ Joe and the Wildhorse Band, played heard heard each performer’s stories, and of course, their music.
Sharp took to the stage for the show, singing some country favorites and a signature tune, “Nobody Knows.” Sharp, himself a cancer survivor, motivational speaker and author, thanked the crowd for supporting Country Jamin’ in the Valley, an event held to benefit the Navasky Foundation for Cancer Research and Queens for Kids – Children’s Miracle Network.
Chuck Navasky, founder of One Less Tear and the NFCR, even sat in with Sharp to play a song.
The jam continues Sunday with Smokin’ Joe playing once again. Lorne Nelson, Lana Gail and Brian Miller are just a few of the acts scheduled to play Sunday.
Rides, food and all types of merchandise booths can be found at the festival. A craft show is also being held in the Agriculture Building. Admission Sunday is $10 per person. Children under the age of 12 are admitted for free.
