And the final entertainment announcement for the Fair….. Opening for Ann Wilson of Heart on Friday July 28th are special guests The Sisterhood and ZZ Ward. Tickets can be purchased at https://midwestix.securemytix.com/event/ann-wilson-wcf17 More information on each act below:
The Sisterhood are an organic bled of the open melodies of classic West Coast folk and the magnetic swagger of timeless rock n’ roll, powered by Alyssa and Ruby’s soaring richly textured harmonies and effortless chemistry. Both ladies have strong musical DNA. Alyssa is the daughter of Kathie Baillie & Michael Bonagura (the core of country band Baillie & The Boys) and Ruby’s father is rock icon Rod Stewart.
After only a year of knowing each other, the duo are capturing attention immediately all over the globe. They’ve written and recorded their first EP which features the theme song “Tenderize My Heart” for the Stewarts & Hamilton’s show on E!, performed at Fashion Weeks in Milan and Miami, made guest appearances at Rod Stewart’s Vegas show at Caesar’s palace, landed a slot on the main stage at CMC music festival in Australia, opened up for Gary Clark Jr., and for Sir Rod Stewart on his summer and winter stadium tour, as well as headlining their first club tour in the U.K.
ZZ Ward- The Fedora-rocking, guitar-shredding, harmonica-wielding blues siren peppered an old backporch musical recipe with hip-hop urgency and hashtaggable wisdom on her 2012 mixtape Eleven Roses. Followed by her full-length debut Til The Casket Drops yielded a veritable hit in the form of Put The Gun Down. The latter generated 7.4 million-plus Spotify streams and held strong in the Top 10 of AAA radio for 10 weeks as well as receiving over 100 high-profile licensing placements and syncs, including the feature film We’re The Millers. Kendrick Lamar [Cryin Wolf] and Freddie Gibbs [Criminal] were quick to collaborate, while Rolling Stone, Guitar World, Elle, Interview Magazine, USA Today, NPR and more extolled her. She lit up the screen on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, Conan, Good Morning America, The Tonight Show, The View, and many others and practically set stages ablaze on tours with Eric Clapton, Gary Clark, Jr., and Fitz & The Tantrums and at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Firefly, and Made In America.
