The Great Divide Concerts in the Park @ Ober Park August 2015 - John Sage :: FinchHaven Digital Photography

The Great Divide at Ober Park was the final event in Vashon Events and the Vashon Parks District's 'Concerts in the Park' series for 2015.

From Vashon Events: "The Great Divide is a Vashon institution. The all-islander band was formed in the early '80s and played locally for many years before hitting the "big time", touring with blues guitar great Elvin Bishop.

In 1987 the band won the Marlboro Country Music Talent Roundup, with a $5000 grand prize, and the privilege of opening for Alabama, The Judd's and George Strait in the Tacoma Dome before a crowd of 20,000.

They have opened for Asleep at the Wheel, Charlie Daniels, and many other well-known acts. Playing a mix of country rock, Texas swing, and straight up rock, their arrangements are sure to rock the town."
