Cuyahoga Valley National Park hosts pair of concerts


BRECKSVILLE, Ohio – Lee Murdock will perform May 12 at 8 p.m. at Happy Days Visitor Center in Cuyahoga Valley National Park as a part of River Day, the annual clean up of the Cuyahoga River.

Murdock celebrates River Day by sharing the music of the Great Lakes. Murdock’s songs tell the stories of heroic deeds, tragic shipwrecks, and the lives of the people who make their homes and their living along the shores of the Great Lakes.

Murdock is noted as a fluent instrumentalist, playing the six- and 12-string guitars. His musical influences span 15 generations, from ancient Celtic music to Scott Joplin rags; rhythm and blues to contemporary.
