Barbara Fairchild headlines weekend show
Grammy-nominated recording artist Barbara Fairchild headlines this weekend’s Shenandoah Jamboree at the Historic Wayne Theatre/Ross Performing Arts Center.
Fairchild, a 2009 inductee into the Christian Music Hall of Fame, will be joined at the Jamboree, which is set for Saturday night at 7 p.m., with special guest Glen Shelton.

Fairchild is best known for her 1973 #1 single, “The Teddy Bear Song,” which earned her a Grammy nomination.
She followed the success of “The Teddy Bear Song” with “Kid Stuff,” which charted as high as #2, and another Top 10 hit in 1974, “Baby Doll.”
“Barbara’s shows are entertaining and family-friendly at the same time,” said Tracy Straight, the executive director of the Wayne Theatre. “The combination of Barbara Fairchild and Glen Shelton should make for a memorable night at the Shenandoah Jamboree.”
Shelton had a Top 20 hit in 2010, “Help Me to Stand,” and he has opened across the country for big-name acts including Joe Shelton, Darryl Worley, Tanya Tucker and local favorite Jimmy Fortune.
