Exceptional live music continues to be an integral part of the creative atmosphere at Tyler Park Center for the Arts. This year’s Crafts in the Meadow headline performers include “Lily Mae”, Greg Merkel and JB Kline, among others. According to TPCA Executive Director Jennifer Miller, “Don’t be surprised to catch hoop dancers floating through the music area – be sure to join them to try out this new twist on an old pastime!”
