Over 25 years ago - by pure happenstance - I saw country singer Lionel Cartwright in one of the free pavilions at the Minnesota State Fair.  I was already at the fair and happened upon the concerts start just by chance.  The show made my day and I am still glad that I had the opportunity to see him in concert - especially for free!

Officials with the Minnesota State Fair just announced the free lineup for the 2015 exposition.  I was quite impressed with some of the acts that are coming.  The shows rum the gamut from pop to country, rock to the blues.  Some of the notable acts include 90's country favorite Terri Clark and 70's/80's Foreigner-front man Lou Gramm.

The complete list of free shows for the Minnesota State Fair is available on the fairs website.
