Kinnaird Concerts in the Park wrap up on a high note

Motes and Oats, with accompaniment from Rob Fahey of Nelson on bass, brought a lively blend of tunes for the last show of the season.

Another appreciative audience filled Kinnaird Park on Wednesday, Aug. 28 to enjoy the last evening of free Concerts in the Park sponsored by Kalawsky Automotive Group.

From original love songs like “With You” to covers of George Michael’s “Faith” to songs with a message about the environment like “Wonderous Wonder”, the beautiful harmony from the distinctive voices of McCready and Moldenhauer was a great way to wrap up the seasonal concerts.

Rob Fahey, on bass, provided numerous solos throughout the evening that brought extended applause from the audience.

“It’s great to have been able to partner with Rob,” said McCready, who added that the harmony comes pretty naturally with Moldenhauer as the two live together. “We were lucky to meet him shortly after he moved to the area.”

Going a little past what were usually hour-long Wednesday night shows was just fine on this particular evening. As the sunset dwindled and the evening air cooled slightly, many attendees seemed in no hurry to see the concert series come to an end.

Organizer Darlene Kalawsky wished to thank all of the volunteers who helped in the setup and take down of the concerts, the Rotary Interact Club who offered their services at the concession and a special thanks to all of those who turned out every week to enjoy the musicians.
