MANSFIELD—The Mansfield Memories Committee is proud to present the Mansfield Music Fest and Dance this Saturday, June 22, at the Mansfield Township Hall, located at 2804 State Highway M-69 between Sagola and Crystal Falls.
The Music Fest begins at noon with open jamming on the grounds—bring your instrument, music and a lawn chair. Also beginning at noon, the indoor stage and dance floor will open with entertainment provided by several local groups.
At 6 p.m. the Fairland Bluegrass Band from Brussels, Wis., takes the stage for your listening pleasure. The Fairland Bluegrass Band has been wowing audiences and getting rave reviews statewide since 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.
It is a five-piece family band that brings that good old-fashioned, three-part “Blood Blend” harmony. The band features Dan Rass, a 40-year veteran of 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 Calyn’s husband, Neil Saindon, on guitar and high tenor vocals.
For more information about the band, go to www.fairlandbluegrass.com or check out video of band at Cup ‘O Joy on YouTube.
Admission to the festival will be $5, with 12 and under being 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.”
