As usual, a wide variety of musical genres will be on display at this year’s Adams County Fair, including the county’s own Liberty Band, which will perform at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, July 15 as part of Senior Citizens and Armed Forces Day at the fair.

The opening night of the 2015 Fair (Sunday, July 12) will conclude with a concert by the band Spearpoint at 8p.m., who will energetically hit the stage with a wide variety of music, ranging from surf songs to the Beatles, The Who, and a little southern rock, all played with band’s own bit of edginess. The group has performed at Great American Ball Park, the Kentucky Speedway, Sawyer Point, and many other local venues.

Spearpoint consists of Spencer St. Pierre on vocals, lead, and rhythm guitar, Augie Giambrone on lead and rhythm guitar and vocals, Jack Miller on bass guitar, Ethan Adams on drums and percussion, and Elyssa Girtman on vocals and keyboards. Hang around on the first night of the fair for a unique music experience.

Concluding the Senior Fair activities on Monday night at 8:30 p.m., July 13 will be a group that many countians are familiar with, One Over 8, five men who perform at a number of local stops. One Over 8 is made up of Jeremy Reed, Daniel Horsley, Mike Cisco, Carl Riggins, and Steve Zornes.

To conclude the activities on Tuesday, July 14, the Christian sounds of Finding Favour will fill the center ring. If you need some fuel to your religious fire, then the foursome of Blake NeeSmith, Allen Dukes, Dustin Daniels, and Josh Duckworth should be just the right medicine for you. The Finding Favour show will begin in the center ring at 7:30 p.m.

Country music fans will delight in the closing act on Saturday, July 18 as Noah Smith, described as a “modern day country rock Springsteen,” will perform at 8 p.m. in the center ring. A native of Brown County, Smith fell in love with the sounds of the acoustic guitar at a young age and the rest is history. Smith has been nominated for three Cincinnati Entertainment Awards, Best New Artist, Best Country Artist, and Best Singer/Songwriter. Smith will also be appearing at the Brown County Summer Fest in Mt. Orab on Aug. 7.
