But before I tell you about the rest of them I’m going to encourage you to click here to visit the Fair’s website.

The first thing you need to know about Mr. Jacobs is that by clicking here you can visit his website. Its full of photos, demos, a schedule of where he’s playing next, and a page where you can buy his CDs. More importantly, you also need to know this is the thirteenth year Mr. Jacobs has been at the NC Mountain State Fair.

Leon Jacobs, Jr is one of my favorite musicians at the Fair. He is going to be there pretty much the whole time, doing what he loves — playing great music for you. So swing by the Pepsi Music Stage and listen to a song or two. Remember, you can come back cause this guy has some serious endurance.
EMILY BODLEY 5-7 pm Monday, September 9 on the Bojangles Music Stage
Emily Bodley is an exciting addition to the Fair’s lineup. This is a 17 year old from Hendersonville who will be getting the chance to play on the Bojangles Music Stage. That’s inspiring and heartwarming at the same time. Emily plays acoustic music on the guitar, ukele, and mandolin in a fresh, honest way that you’ll enjoy.
