If you haven't purchased tickets for the Fair Hill Country/Bluegrass Festival scheduled for Aug. 10 in Cecil County, you can forget it. The festival is sold out.
All 18,800 tickets to the festival, featuring The Judds, Ricky Van Shelton, Shelby Lynne, other performers, exhibits, workshops and children's activities, are gone, according to Jody Albright, director of the Governor's Office of Art and Culture.
"Totally surprised," Albright said. "We had hoped we would sell ten- to twelve-thousand tickets and have strong gate sales of five-thousand. We were just hoping we would do that."
Country music fans from as far away as Colorado, Tennessee and New York snapped up the $10 tickets.
