The Friends of High Point State Park invite you to a special evening of music in the park with national folk and Americana music veteran Jonathan Edwards on Sunday, August 19, from 6 pm to 8 pm on the beach at Lake Marcia. Edwards will perform the third and final concert in the Friends of High Point State Park 2012 Summer Concert Series. 

Edwards’ highly respected repertoire includes such classics as “Honky Tonk Stardust Cowboy,” “Sometimes,” “One Day Closer,” “Don’t Cry Blue,” “Emma,”  “Everybody Knows Her,” “Athens County,” “Shanty,” and “Sunshine (Go Away Today).” The barefoot troubadour, whose career spans over 40 years, is sure to entertain both longtime fans and soon-to-be fans at this special night of music under the setting sun on Kittatinny Mountain.

Admission to this special concert event is a suggested donation of $10 per adult. Children are admitted free. Park entrance fees apply to admission before 4 pm

Seating is lawn and beach seating. Bring your own blankets and chairs. The concert is a family-friendly event. Picnicking is encouraged. Alcohol is strictly forbidden. 

In the event of rain, the concert will be held in the High Point State Park Interpretive Center. To learn more about Jonathan Edwards and his music, please visit

The Friends of High Point State Park is a non-profit organization that fosters and supports activities at High Point State Park in Sussex, NJ. Proceeds of the concert will go toward funding this and future events.
