PennCrest Bank Music Fest at Cresson Lake Playhouse
June 19 @ 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm$13
Cresson Lake Playhouse in combination with PennCrest Bank is pleased to announce a new summer outdoor event. This wonderful evening of musical entertainment will be held on June 19 from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. in the new outdoor performing space behind the Barn theater at 279 Shapiro Road in Loretto.
Performers will include:
The smooth stylings of Bruce Shettig. Bruce, a real estate appraiser in Lilly, has played guitar in churches, colleges and taverns throughout the region. He is an exponent of finger-style classical guitar, and his repertory ranges from Renaissance to rock.
The dynamic duo, Walt & Jackie, voted “Simply the Best” Entertainers in Johnstown, PA, is an acoustic twosome known for their excellent covers and engaging original songs. Walt Churchey and Jackie Kopco have a special chemistry and ease that captivates audiences to the last song. They play a variety of instruments, including piano, ukulele, guitar and Walt’s famous bongos, and they move easily from old country to new pop, bringing a fresh take to live acoustic music.
Two Far Gone, the duo of Denise Baldwin and Roy Milstead, will be the third performers of the night. Baldwin jumps genres from rock and pop to soul and country, while Milstead is laid-back, rock-influenced and writes lyrics that can range from funny to profound. Denise has a rich musical background as a singer, songwriter, guitarist, bassist, and veteran performer. Throughout the 80’s, she made her living playing full-time with rock bands which opened for Huey Lewis and the News, Southside Johnny, and Donnie Iris. In the past few years she has shared the stage with three-time Grammy-winner and friend Linda Davis.
Finishing the event, Clay Bowser is a very popular musician in the region and a real crowd pleaser. Being a solo performer, he has a tremendous sound and can sing just about anything the audience asks. He often takes requests from the crowd and rarely uses any music at all. Clay knows hundreds and hundreds of songs by heart and is truly a unique artist. People are amazed at his repertoire of music and his skillful ability on the guitar not to mention a tremendous voice to go with it. Clay loves to perform as much as the audience loves hearing him.
