The annual KLYQ Free Stage at the Ravalli County Fair at the end of August was filled with talented local musicians. As we look back at the four-day extravaganza, Hamilton's KLYQ 1240 AM radio station thanks the many people who performed in our giant tent. And they are: Bitterroot Community Band (see photos below) 5 Valley Accordions, Country Step Cloggers and Line Dancers, Eden Kash, the Lockharts, Billy the Wizard, The Compilations, Legacy Martial Arts, Eric Monson's singing students and Tasha Fain's musical students (see photo above). The winning poets at the 9th annual Poetry Contest presented their creations.

We also had a very enjoyable time with our national talent, Michael Mezmer, America"s Award Winning Comedic Hypnotist. Rob Myers of A Sound Solution out of Stevensville handled the audio duties again (550-1719) and the staff at the Ravalli County Fairgrounds were exceptional, as usual. We hope everyone had a grand time at the fair!
