Coming to the Oconto County Fair
Enjoy an Afternoon of Stories and Music with
Michael Perry and the Longbeds
Michael Perry is a Wisconsin-born humorist, musician, and author with a string of best selling memoirs and who performs regularly with his band, the Longbeds. Raised on a small farm, he likens writing to cleaning calf pens—just keep shoveling and eventually you've got a pile so big that someone will notice. He lives in rural Wisconsin where he continues to serve on his local rescue squad.
Much of his humor and writing is rooted in farm and rural Wisconsin goings on. If you grew up in rural Wisconsin you'll relate--while rolling in the aisles.
The Oconto County Library Board is sponsoring the Michael Perry and the Longbeds show. The free performance will take place in front of the grandstand Saturday, August 25 starting at 12:30 p.m. Learn more about Michael Perry by visiting his website: www.sneezingcow.com
