Approximately 1,300 people attended the 3rd annual National Park Radio concert at Steel Creek Campground on Saturday. National Park Radio, an Americana/folk/bluegrass band from Harrison, delighted concert-goers with more than 2 hours of live music among the unmatched natural beauty of Buffalo National River. Park personnel and event volunteers began directing traffic at 1:00 PM for the Saturday evening concert.
