Music flows through the Riverside Inn over Labor Day weekend by Ryan Smith

In venturing to and fro the local music and arts events, there are sweet spots aplenty to be found, all throughout the nooks and crannies of northwestern Pennsylvania.

One of the sweetest sweet spots sits right about where the southern tip of Erie County meets the northern point of Crawford County: In good ‘ol Cambridge Springs, at the big, beautiful, historic Riverside Inn.

Over the years, I’ve caught a plethora of players – locals and big names alike – doin’ their things up on that Riverside stage, from folk, to funk, to rock and country, to funky-folksy-country-rock.

And in recent years, one man, local musician and show-maker Justin Moyar – with a little help from his friends – has been the guy behind alotta the events there, bringing out and putting up eclectic blends of some of the best music around.

Moyar and gang are at it again in Cambridge Springs around the Labor Day holiday,  when they’ll present Riverside Arts Weekend – a two-day, family-friendly affair featuring lotsa worth-seeing live acts, arts displays, good grub, and other cool stuff at the Inn from Saturday, Aug. 30 through Sunday, Aug. 31.

This time around, the Riverside’s playing host to performers like “The HurdGurdler”, Brian McCoy, the Seattle-based guitar legend Baby Gramps, Seann P. Clark (of Basket Eddy), The Armitan Hand, Jessi & the Grayhounds, the Justin Moyar Group, and others.

That’s one solid – and sweet – lineup, and a helluva nice way to put summer to bed.

And no worries if you need to do the same for yourself – the Riverside’s got rooms for that, too. – Ryan Smith
