You might think that it’s a bit early to think about the annual Richland County Fair.
It’s certainly not too early for the organizers, however, or for those wanting to purchase entertainment tickets. In fact, tickets for the headline performing group go on sale in less than a month.
This year’s headliners will be LANCO, who will be performing at the grandstand on Tuesday, August 7 at 8 PM.
LANCO is an American Country band whose name is a shortened version of Lancaster and Company; the lead vocalist is Brandon Lancaster. According to Wikipedia, “The band was founded in 2013. After meeting record producer Jay Joyce at a Keith Urban concert, they signed to his publishing company, and then to Arista Nashville. Through the label, they released their debut four-song EP, titled Extended Play on April 15, 2016. They also released their first single from the album, “Long Live Tonight”, and another one of their songs, “Greatest Love Story”, appears in the Netflix series The Ranch. “Greatest Love Story” reached No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts at the end of 2017.
Tickets for the LANCO concert go on sale April 9, and are priced at $25 for the track and $20 for the grandstand.
Fair officials have also announced that harness racing is returning to the Richland County Fair on Sunday, August 5 and Monday, August 6. The Fair runs from August 5 through August 11.
