Main Stage

Jug Huffers Grabill Country Fair

Jug Huffers

The Jug Huffers are a jug band from northeast Indiana that plays all of your favorite mountain music hits–bluegrass, old time, traditional, and original music to get you dancing and warm your cockles.

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 5-7pm and playing on the main stage Thursday 6-7pm.

Wickle Creek at Grabill Country Fair

Aaron Stutzman & Country Road Bluegrass

Aaron Stutzman (age 30), a growing musician, singer, songwriter, and yodeler, received a passion for music during the early years of his life. It was in those years that he first heard the song of a yodeler. With much inspiration from yodeler Lee Schwartz, The Clearwater Band, and several other artists throughout the years, Aaron now seeks to bless and encourage others through his own singing and yodeling.
He is backed by a full bluegrass band with some upbeat country style and three-part harmonies. Aaron recorded his first album in 2013 called “The Yodeler”, and his second project titled “The Man I Am Today” in 2015. Lord willing, Aaron plans to record his third album sometime in the near future.
Growing up, the Forks area between Shipshewana and Middlebury, IN was home for Aaron. Now he, his wife Jenna, 2 sons, Wesley and Walker, and daughter, Wrenli, make their home south of Millersburg, IN. Along with playing music, Aaron is self-employed doing handyman work.
Aaron’s desire is to use the talent he has been given to share the love of Jesus, and bring glory to God through it.

Aaron will perform on the Main Stage on Saturday 7-9pm.
