Lt. Gov. Simon to perform with blues band at Illinois State Fair

SPRINGFIELD, IL (KFVS) -

Lt. Governor Sheila Simon will be performing with her Carbondale based blues band at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield.

Simon will also be at an award ceremony honoring centennial farm families from Illinois.

“The Illinois State Fair is a wonderful celebration of the things that make Illinois a great place to work and live, from our rich agricultural history, to local foods and music,” said Simon. “My family and I have enjoyed the fair for many years, and I hope many other Illinois families will do the same.”

Simon and her band "Loose Gravel" will perform at the Miller Lite tent from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 14.

The Carbondale-based blues band debuted at state fair in 2011.

On Agriculture Day, Tuesday, Aug. 13, Simon will present the Ag Day Awards to families who have farmed in the state for at least 100 years.

Lt. Governor Simon’s tent is located at the intersection of Main Street and Brian Raney Avenue, across from the Emerson Building and will be open Friday, Aug. 9 to Sunday, Aug. 18 from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
