DU QUOIN -- The opening weekend of the Du Quoin State Fair promises to offer something for everybody. The Du Quoin State Fair is proud to announce the addition of Blackberry Smoke to its summer grandstand concert series. The southern country-rock band will perform on Saturday, Aug. 25. Critics call this quintet's sound a blend of classic rock, blues, country, and folk. Their albums are full of variety from stripped down acoustic songs to bruising alt-country. "It's so good it just can't get old," said Blackberry Smoke's guitarist/vocalist Charlie Starr in an interview with GRAMMY.com. "[Southern rock is] always a welcome sound to people's ears."
