The first two days of the fair will feature legendary music of the 1960s with Nathan Owenâ€™s Motown Legends and â€œPaperback Writer,â€ a tribute to the group that launched the British invasion of that eraâ€”the Beatles. Motown will be March 1, the first Friday of the fair and the Beatles Tribute will be March 2.
