The Sandwich Fair welcomes back Ashley Lewis and Legacy on the opening night of the fair, Sept. 4. Lewis’ concert will kick off the fiddle contest at 5 p.m. on the AgLand Stage.

Touring throughout the U.S. and Canada, Lewis is known for her vocals and mandolin work. She also is a songwriter, and evidence of this can be heard on her soon-to-be-released album, “Captivated.”

Producer of the project, legendary Jimmy Mattingly, said in a news release, “This CD is a great example of an unbelievable talent which is portrayed on this project through Ashley’s prolific songwriting, musicianship and passionate vocal style.”

Along with guitar and upright bass, accompanying Lewis in her band, Legacy, is Mattingly of Nashville. He also plays with Reba McEntire, Garth Brooks and has toured with Dolly Parton, Brooks & Dunn, and Steve Wariner.

Teresa Fry from Andalusia, rounds out Legacy with her solid and innovative approach on the upright bass.
