"Big Top Chetaqua" Ashland Things to Do Tip by tmp200

Ashland Things to Do: 5 reviews and 6 photos

An old fashioned tent show, with a real tent. Canvas roof and walls, this place has limited seating but brings in some big names. My wife and I saw Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Garrison Keillor (sp?). The house band is made up of true professionals, very good. An experience from the old days, in modern time. Some house shows, many written and directed by Warren Nelson of the Lost Nation String Band. Very entertaining, real folks, good music, in fact you will have a good time if you want to or not. And after the show, or even during it, you can talk to the performers. They are real people, very good at what they do, but not the type to rush off into a trailer after the show. I recommend the show 'Keeper of the Light'. History of the Grea Lakes lighthouses, it's captivating. A combination of music, slide show, live performance...Much humor, much history...beautiful. And I have no vested interested, not a member, just loved the shows.
