Bluegrass Family 

In an old barn on the Glacial Hills near Perry Lake, bluegrass fans find an authentic treat — the Faris Family. The Bluegrass Barn Theater, converted into a proper stage decades ago for Lawrence thespians, is the perfect venue for the two Faris parents and their four sons to offer old country and gospel. They resurrected the venue last May and have been playing to alcohol-free crowds of about 50 most weekends since. Nestled on Apple Valley Farm, the stage is a stone’s throw from camping sites near Perry Lake and the Grainery Saloon restaurant, which is heavy on barbecue options. Doors open at 6 p.m. at 9252 Apple Valley Lane in Ozawkie, and the banjo-rific show starts at 7. Tickets cost $8, and kids 15 and younger get in free with adults. For more information, call 785-876-2114 or see bluegrassbarntheater.com. Faris Family
