Music in the Park, the monthly live music concert produced by the Van Alstyne Chamber of Commerce, has picked up momentum as it moves through the summer. The June concert featured singer/songwriters Scott Sean White and Big Joe Walker.


Both men usually lead their own, individual bands, but got together to swap songs over keyboards and guitars; and to swap tales about those songs and about songwriting, both in their North Texas areas and in Nashville.


The Music in the Park concerts are scheduled to be held at the Dorothy Fielder Park, with performers playing in the gazebo and sending their music to the crowds. Again, however, as it did for the May concert, rain forced the musicians and crowds inside and the Whistlestop Cafe opened its doors to the music and the crowds, making everyone feel at home.


The next concert will be on Tuesday, July 25, and will feature the string band The Bodarks. Music runs from 6:30-8 p.m. These are all free to the public.
