HILLSBORO, Ohio | The Fling Barn reopens this spring with more than 30 events and a lineup of performers that owner Dr. Bill Fling calls, "extraordinary."
The 2012 season kicks off on Saturday, March 31 with Kelly Red and The Hammerheads.
"We are very excited about the coming season," said Fling. "We think we've put together a calendar of extraordinary artists that we believe will please both avid music lovers and folks that like to dance as well."
While still featuring primarily blues and R&B artists, country and rock acts have been added to create a calendar with "something for everyone," Fling said.
"We're also featuring more regional and national acts this year," Fling said "We have former Pure Prairie League members The Goshorn Brothers returning April 20 and Shaun Murphy will be here May 11. She is a fantastic singer who has recorded and toured with Bob Seger, Eric Clapton and Bruce Hornsby, and was vocalist for 15 years with Little Feat."
Also appearing throughout the season will be '60s rockers The Professors, country duo Martin-Ramey, one of Cincinnati's finest bands The Blue Birds, and The Kentucky Headhunters.
The Fling Barn is located six miles south of Hillsboro at 8205 West Barrysville Road. Slow and Low Bar-B-Que begins serving at 7 p.m., with music starting at 8 p.m. A complete calender can be found at www.flingbarn.com.
