Fall fair just weeks away

  • Jul. 21, 2006 6:00 a.m.

Submitted by the Tlell Fall Fair Committee–It is true that the Tlell Fall Fair is just weeks away, two to be exact. It is on Sunday August 6 , so I hope you are working on your entries.
This years’ entertainers are Tippy Agogo and Tal Bachman. Tippy is known for worldwide performances as the “One Man Orchestra”. He can make music out of anything, including tin cans and broken guitars. I’m waiting to see what he is going to do with the paper rolls he has asked us to save.
His first book (with accompanying CD) “In the groove” is a guide to interactive music making for all ages.
Our other entertainer this year is Tal Bachman. Yes, he is Randy’s son. Tal is an internationally recognized singer/song writer from Vancouver. He had a top ten hit “She’s so high” a couple of years ago, which won him, a GMI Award as well as Juno. He’s written songs for soundtracks for movies like “Here on Earth” and “Loser”. His songs have also appeared on shows like NYPD Blues and Dawson’s Creek. “Staring down the sun” is his latest album, released July. 20.
Check out the Observer for the time they will be performing, as like a concert it will be only one show.
We’re looking for local entertainers to open for the performances on fair day. If you wish to be on stage, call Doug at 559-8975
