Burlington County Farm Fair | ENTERTAINMENT

GROUSER GIRLS

THE PRESTOS

“Singing to someone and seeing their face light up when they really get your message is one of the greatest feelings an entertainer can get,” says Paul Presto, Jr. Presto has been playing music since the age of 8. By 14, he was playing in nightclubs all over South Jersey with his father Paul Presto, Sr. He was the band leader for the Black Tie Orchestra, a prominent Philadelphia area society band for over 20 years. Under the alias of Paul Street, he wrote and produced two country albums, “Streetwise” and “Temporary Sanity”. A song from the second album called “My Daddy Does” is a duet with his daughter Emma that tells all about how the music has been a part of the family for years. “Having my daughter sing a duet with me on the CD is one of the proudest moments of my life,” he said. “Now I know how my Dad must have felt the first time I came on stage with him to perform.” Emma is now a full-time band member

with Paul (shown in photo above) and Paul Presto Sr. They play for private events, fairs, weddings, birthday parties—anywhere that people gather to have a great time. More information can be found at http:// www.reverbnation.com/paulstreet. The Prestos will be performing in the North Show Tent on Wednesday, July 18 and Saturday, July 21, at 7:30 p.m.

Warm Hearted Country will be performing in the fair’s Dining Pavilion on Friday, July 20 at 7:30 p.m. The band was formed in 2003 by Laurie and Alice Dorisio. Alice Dorisio has been performing country music for about 50 years, mostly in family bands. Laurie Dorisio’s love of country and bluegrass music goes back to her childhood when she began singing with her Mom at age 6. Laurie Dorisio sings lead vocals and plays guitar and mandolin. Alice Dorisio plays the snare drum and harmonica, provides harmony and sings lead vocals. This mother/daughter team offers audiences a unique combination of immensely popular entertainment. Other Warm Hearted Country band members include Dave Thomas playing lead

guitar and mandolin and Alan Chambers playing electric bass. It is with a heavy heart that the group shares the sad news of the passing of Alice’s son Bruce, a fabulous harmonica player who added so much to the unique sound of Warm Hearted Country and who will be dearly missed by both the band and its fans. This fine group of talented, experienced musicians delights and captivates audiences with their creativity and unique, signature sound. Warm Hearted Country offers an enjoyable mix of classic country, bluegrass, oldies, old-time rock & roll and gospel favorites!

Burlington County Farm Fair | WEDNESDAY, JULY 18 THE FARM FAIR QUEEN CONTEST The longest running farm fair event since the fair’s inception in 1947, and one of its most anticipated, is the Farm Fair Queen Contest. This event held on the second night of the fair (Wednesday), traditionally draws young women who have an interest in the preservation of agriculture in Burlington County. The queen-elect must be entering either her junior or senior year in high school or its equivalent in a home-school program. Contestants are judged on poise, stage presence and the ability to express themselves verbally, based on their answers to an essay question are judged at a time other than the evening of the contest. The queen's duties are to serve as the official hostess of the fair and to visit all parts of it during the week.

Anthony’s Jewelers of Palmyra has been a long-time supporter of the contest and provides not only the crown, but gifts for the queen and her court. Trustees Coles Roberts, Larry Cauffman and Bob Benedict serve as the queen’s official drivers in various county parades during the year. Emcee Paul Pestritto has been running the contest and announcing the queen since 1996. In addition, the queen is eligible to compete in the State Agricultural Contest in which the winner represents the state at all county farm fair events. The outgoing queen returns each year to crown her successor. Each queen is expected to complete a “give back” project for the fair. This can be in the form of visiting schools to promote the fair in the spring, or a project that the queen comes up with and runs by the contest director, Jamie Padulese, who is a former queen herself.

Burlington County Farm Fair | THURSDAY, JULY 19 BURLINGTON COUNTY 4-H CLOGGERS For county 4-H members, exhibiting at the Farm Fair is a required activity—and an especially exciting one for the Cloggers, a 4-H dance troupe with about 40 members ranging in age from 5 to 18. Since clogging has its roots in Appalachia, country music is the group’s prevalent genre, but they include some pop music routines in their repertoire, as well. The Cloggers, who have been entertaining visitors at the fair since the 1980s, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the North Show Tent. Know something going on in your community?
