THE LITTLE ROY & LIZZY SHOW
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 6 - 5PM & 7PM
The Columbia County Fair is proud to welcome for one day only The Little Roy and Lizzy Show. Be entertained on Sunday, November 2nd with the bluegrass talents of "Little" Roy Lewis and Elizabeth "Lizzy" Long. The DOVE award winners will be on stage for 5pm and 7pm performances.

Having roots in the heart of the south, Elizabeth Long, or Lizzy as her friends and fans know her, began her music accomplishment at an early age. While starting out on the piano, Lizzy soon took up the fiddle, guitar, autoharp, bass, banjo, and mandolin, and has become an accomplished musician, alternating between these instruments as part of her entertainment repertoire. Lizzy has paired up with Little Roy Lewis from the legendary Lewis Family. Her extraordinary voice shimmers with strains of America’s musical roots. Lizzy has won “Bluegrass Song of the Year”, and is one of the youngest fiddlers to be inducted into “America’s Old Time Fiddler’s Country Hall of Fame.”

Little Roy has won awards as an entertainer as well as for his banjo playing, learning to play when he was only six years old, and won a local talent contest at age eight. Called 'a banjo master, truly a picker's picker' by USA Today, Little Roy can also be found playing the guitar and autoharp. Multi-talented - he sings, plays many instruments, tells stories, and acts. When you see this duo, you are sure to notice Little Roy, and he'll make you smile.

SEA LION SPLASH
Sea Lion Splash" is an exciting and one of a kind traveling sea lion exhibit. Squalus Inc. was first established when Marco Peters began adopting and providing a home for sea lions who were unable to survive in the wild because of sickness, age, or injuries. Marco's passion for sea lions led him to educate the public on the need to coexist with these special marine mammals in harmony. Thus, began the journey of the "Sea Lion Splash" which now travels all over North America entertaining thousands of people each year. This unique show is truly one of a kind, being the only sea lion show which features both California sea lions and South American sea lions. This incredible show features sea lions performing entertaining and educational tricks including handstands, balancing balls, flips, dancing, smiling, and even teaching kids how to recycle!
MASTER CHAINSAW SCULPTOR
In 1992 Masters of the Chainsaw was formed to provide professional representation for chainsaw carvers in the business of carving performance art. The original founders of Masters of the Chainsaw are Steve Blanchard of Monterey, California, and Brian Ruth of Hartsville, Pennsylvania. The two sculptors met at the Winternational Chainsaw Carving Competition in Tampa, Florida. Brian took a first place and Steve took a second place.

In 1995 due to increased demand at his full time studio and shop, Steve asked to be relieved of his duties to Masters of the Chainsaw and proprietorship went to Brian Ruth. His wife and partner, Jen has since teamed up with Brian. Together they continue to place the best artists at various events around the world. Masters of the Chainsaw main focus is the representation of only the finest professional chainsaw sculptors. The carvers they seek to represent are the very best performance chainsaw artists in the world. The carver's artistic ability and speed are not the only criteria they must meet to be one of Masters of the Chainsaw.
