World rhythm returns to county fair

A lineup of local talent

Continuing in its recent tradition of presenting a variety of musical styles and emphasizing local Lincoln County talent, the Lincoln County Fair will again feature the multicultural traditional world rhythms of Newport’s Thunder & Lightness World Beat Ensemble. The popular group — celebrating its eighth year of performing at the fair — will kick off the music schedule on the main stage on Saturday July 7, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., followed by other well-known local acts, Unplugged, with Steve Mason and Bruce Moore, at 1 p.m.; Donnie MacFarlane, at 2 p.m.; Lisha & The Outlaws, with the irrepressible Lisha Rose, at 4 p.m.; and Green Achers, bringing country back to the fair, at 6 p.m.; along with headliner country-rock singer Briana Renea, from Portland, at 7:45 p.m.
