Strolling Through the Fair

Hoosier Gentry Grabill Country Fair

Chain Gang

“Break the chains! We’re spreading harmony through song!”

The Chain Gang Barbershop quartet formed in 1997 and is noted for its a-cappella four-part harmony, a style that is unmistakably unique and pleasing to the ear. The Chain Gang performs for reunions, corporate events and festivals all over Northern Indiana and while two of the members are from Warsaw, the group is based in Columbia City as part of the Chain-O-Lakes Barbershop Chorus. We are proud members of the international organization, the Barbershop Harmony Society.  More info here.

The Chain Gang will be strolling through the fair Friday & Saturday 6-7pm.

Jug Huffers Grabill Country Fair

Jug Huffers

The Jug Huffers are a jug and string band from northeast Indiana that play traditional, old time, bluegrass, and original tunes.

We play anywhere we’re allowed (and even some we’re not). We’ve played in coffee houses, bars, private parties, bluegrass festivals, folk music festivals, farmers’ markets, and on the streets for tips. You may have even heard us on the radio–or that’s just the moonshine taking effect.

Just point us to the party…  More info here.

The Jug Huffers will be strolling through the fair Friday & Saturday 5-7pm.
