Friday, September 1, 2017 – The Less Boys
The “Less Boys Bluegrass Band” hails from near Danville, Pennsylvania. Members include Bucky Cutchall and Ryan Ossont. Bucky and Ryan coined the name “Less Boys” from nicknames they had for one another – “Worthless” and “Useless”. The name Less Boys evolved from the nicknames. Other players who often accompany the LESS BOYS are Ken, Joe, Jim, Bob, and Ray. The LESS BOYS have only been playing together for less than a year, but their reputation is catching on. What most characterizes the LESS BOYS is their love of music and a good time. Never a dull moment when the LESS BOYS are performing.
The Less Boys play at county fairs, bluegrass jams, special events, and by special request.
Saturday, September 2, 2017 – Ed Fassett and The Outlaws
This group hails from the Meshoppen area. Ed has been playing and singing since he was 14 years old. Later he organized his own band, now with Roger Miller, Skip Goble, and Timmy Shoemaker. They can be seen in several locations around the area. Black Walnut Legion is a great place to catch this old time and classic western band, where you might find them doing a square dance and taking your personal request.
Sunday, September 3, 2017 – The Greenwood Valley Boys
The Greenwood Valley Boys started out as “just a few friends getting together” to play music. Then they were asked to play for a few family reunions, followed by a few church socials. Next thing you know they had a following and were being asked to play at local fairs and carnivals.
Their genuine music and the way they interact with the crowd lets you know they are sincere in their message. The music is enjoyed by all ages. Just look around and you will see smiles, clapping along, toe tapping, dancing and even a few tears.
Holy Cow, Mr. Pig and Bully the Longhorn Bull are ready to rock and roll, and stroll, at our fair. These giant farm animal characters perform shows and occasionally stroll the grounds. During the show, you can participate in the hog calling contest and other games, plus the characters dance and breakdance! As seen on the very first season of America’s Got Talent!
