The Madera District Fair gets into full swing with a concert lineup that includes country, classic rock and Norteno.
The Marshall Tucker Band kicks off the main-stage entertainment 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10. Tickets are $10. The Marshall Tucker Band helped define southern rock in the 1970s, with its mix of rock, R&B, jazz, country and gospel music.
