Sammy Yelle keeps four hula-hoops spinning in motion while The Rustic Riders, Lisa and Klaus Meissner, perform at Berkley Green in Saranac Lake at the Third Thursday ArtWalk last week. A crowd gathered there in the rain to listen to The Rustic Riders’ folk tunes and Jason Hamilton’s original blend of rock genres from many decades, and to watch Yelle spin and dance with a variety of flow props. Children were inspired by Yelle’s talent, and one young girl practiced with a hula-hoop, watching the professional’s every move. Music-lovers stuck it out in the downpour to enjoy the songs pouring off the stage.
