MANSFIELD TOWNSHIP—The Mansfield Memories Committee is proud to present the Mansfield Music Fest and Dance Saturday, June 30, at the Mansfield Township Hall, located at 2804 Highway M-69, between Sagola and Crystal Falls.


 The afternoon will begin at 2 with open jamming on the grounds.
 “Bring your instrument, music and a lawn chair,” said organizers.
 Beginning at 3, the indoor stage and dance floor will open with entertainment being provided by several local groups.
 At 6, the Fairland Bluegrass Band from Brussels, Wis., will take the stage for your listening pleasure.
 The Fairland Bluegrass Band has been wowing audiences and getting rave reviews statewide since the summer of 2008.
 With heartfelt ballads, to foot-stomping fiddle and banjo tunes, the band has taken its own blend of traditional, contemporary and original bluegrass to some of the biggest festivals in Illinois and Wisconsin.
 The band is a five-piece family band that brings that good old-fashioned, three-part “blood blend” harmony.
 With Dan Rass, a 40-year veteran in the Door County music scene, on mandolin, guitar and vocals; his wife, Teri, on bass guitar and vocals; daughter Hana, on fiddle and vocals; daughter Calyn on banjo and vocals; and last but not least Calyn’s husband, Neil Saindon, on guitar and high tenor vocals.
 For more information about the band, look them up at www.fairlandbluegrass.com or check out some video of the Fairland Bluegrass Band at Cup ‘O Joy on YouTube.
 Admission to the festival will be $5 with 12 and admitted free.
 Food and refreshments will be available on the grounds with no carry-ins allowed.
 All proceeds will go to benefit the Mansfield Pioneer Church
 “A good time for a good cause.”
