Way the heck back in 1970, Canal Corners Farm & Market owner Dave Wingenfeld began presenting rock concerts in his parents’ backyard. He called the shows Wingenstock. This summer, Wingenfeld is back to playing the role of local concert promoter with WINGENSTOCK 6, a concert series he hosts in his Big, Red Barn. The classic rock act the Smokey Blue Band kicks off the festivities on Saturday, May 31. The rest of the line-up includes the Celtic folk group Martha’s Mistake (June 21), the Allman Brothers Band tribute act Idlewild (July 12), the Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers tribute act Shadow of a Doubt (Sept. 13) and the blues band Martin and Marshall (Oct. 4). Concerts begin at 7 p.m. but the farm picnic grounds open at 5 p.m. Admission is $10. You can call 216-401-5131 or go to lanterntheatreohio.com for more information. Canal Corners Farm & Market is located at 7243 Canal Rd. in Valley View.
