Sara Evans in Concert

The New York State Fair kicked off yesterday with perfect weather and an evening concert by Sara Evans at Chevrolet Court.  The concerts at Chevrolet Court are included with Fair admission.  She sang all her hits, a couple of cover songs and a few new ones for an upcoming album coming out early in 2010.  I borrowed a friend’s Nikon D700 digital SLR camera and used my Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VR lens and got some good photos of Sara Evans performing for the thousands who packed the mostly lawn-like venue.

With a captivating smile and beautiful singing voice, Sara Evans wowed the audience with her songs and personality.

Sara was very personable with the crowd.  Waving to people, urging them to sing along and joking to  parents with teenage daughters before singing her big hit, “Suds in a Bucket“.

The New York State Fair runs until Labor Day, September 7th.  Look for more photos over the next couple of weeks as I will be photographing at the Fair a few more times.  Oh, and did I mention Pizza Frittes?  More on those soon.
