| July 31, 2014

FRESNO – The Faithful Four and Chestnut Ridge will be featured performers at Celebration in the Country at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 2. The free outdoor concert, the last of the season, will be held on the lawn and pavilion of Renners St. Paul United Church of Christ near Fresno. The public is invited to attend and bring lawn chairs or blankets if desired. Some tables and chairs will be provided. Grilled hot dogs, sloppy joes, and other picnic foods will be available for donation starting at 6 p.m. Lawn games will be set up for youth and adults.

The Faithful Four is a local group that sings gospel music with a barbershop sound. Members include Don Sprankle, tenor; Carl Pearson, lead; Bob Price, bass; and Dick Johnson, baritone. All four sing with the Schoenbrun Valley Barbershop Chorus.

Chestnut Ridge sings and plays a bluegrass sound and includes Jeanell Branstool, vocals and mandolin; Jim Dunfee, vocals and guitar; Duane Hardesty, bass; Mickey Holback, vocals and banjo; and Peter Streiber, fiddle. Hailing from Central Ohio, the group enjoys singing gospel tunes but includes some traditional bluegrass songs as well.

To reach the church from Baltic, travel south on State Route 93 for four miles, then turn left onto Coshocton County Road 88, and then right onto Renner Road for about a mile. From State Route 36, take Coshocton County Road 93 north about six and a half miles to the church.

In case of inclement weather, events will be moved indoors.
