Jonny Lang, Lindsey Stirling join Alaska State Fair concerts
Two more artists have been unveiled in the concert lineup for this year’s Alaska State Fair, including a Grammy-winning singer-songwriter and an acclaimed violinist.
Lang, known for his debut album going platinum at age 15, has become “ built a reputation as one of the best live performers and guitarists of his generation.”
“What began as a bluesy sound has evolved over his two decade-long career into a modern R&B style closer to Stevie Wonder and contemporary gospel music,” fair officials wrote.
Stirling, from Gilbert Arizona, “has created a new music world where modern classical meets the infectious energy of dance and electronica.”
“Fans have clearly welcomed Stirling, who has almost 10 million YouTube subscribers, over 1.9 billion views on her YouTube channel, two Billboard Music Awards, Billboard chart-topping hits and sold out tours worldwide,” fair officials wrote.
Lang is the first of the two newest acts to perform, playing Aug. 29 at 7 p.m., followed by Stirling on Sept. 3 at 3 p.m. Lawn area and reserved seating are $35 and $55 a person for Lang, and $40 and $75 a person for Stirling; fair admissions cost an additional $10 with a ticket.
Booking information, and more information on the fair’s concert lineup is available on its website.
