BRAD SPARKS, 13yo, guitarist/traditional country vocalist, will be performing 9-11pm Friday night September 13th at Old Timer's Days Festival in Peebles, Ohio. This will be his 2nd appearance in the entertainment portion but he has attended the festival as a visitor for many years. His grandparents live in Adams County so he plays in the area whenever he gets a chance. He will be performing hits from Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Elvis, and many more oldies but goodies. He is the youngest, hired entertainer at Renfro Valley Entertainment Center in Mount Vernon, KY and performs there regularly; and just returned from playing several stages in Nashville. He tours many of the opry's & jamborees in the southern Ohio area, and branches out to W. Virginia, Indiana, & Kentucky throughout the year. Brad just released his first CD OPRY TOUR and it will be on sale with other merchandise at the show. He will also be performing in Seaman, Ohio at 5-6:30pm at their fall festival this year on September 21st. Brad's smokin' hot band is Mike Sigler & the Nashville North Band. Brad & Mike know how to work a crowd so make sure you stay for this show as you will be entertained from beginning to end. You can check him out on Facebook at Brad Sparks Music or
