The Young Fables has appeared with such notable acts as Lauren Alaina, Rascal Flatts, Josh Turner, Sara Evans, Chris Janson, Randy Houser, Delta Rae, Liz Longley, and Chris Lane.

Fable of a Song chronicles a remarkable series of tragic events that rocked the duo in 2018 and speaks to a global audience about depression, loss, and resilience.

Tickets are $15 and are limited to 250 to ensure that everyone can safely distance. Doors open at 7 pm; music begins at 8 pm with screening to follow. Food truck and the Ijams beer garden will be open for your food and drink needs.
