Safire Sun, Church Groups to Play Tonight at Heart of Ohio USA Days Festival

June 24, 2015 10:44 AM

By Timothy Perry

Centerburg’s Heart of Ohio USA Days festival kicks off tonight when the midway opens at 5 PM.

Tonight’s theme is “Church Night: God and Country”. It will feature choirs from local churches, a patriotic message, and an orchestra.

Following the church service, at 7:30 PM, Safire Sun will take the stage, offering the best in gospel and bluegrass. They describe themselves as "Hard driving, fast picking, harmony as high as the hills!".

Hailing from central Ohio, Darell Sanson & Safire Sun emerged onto the scene in early 2008.  While much of their repertoire is drawn from progressive bluegrass, alot of their music is original compositions that has been written by the band members themselves. Darell Sanson & Safire Sun fuse tight harmony vocals with high energy sound. Their style encompasses getting the audience involved in their music with their toe tapping and foot stomping songs.

Center vocalists Darell Sanson, Yvonne Sanson and Allie Dible bring power and emotion to every song. They weave vocal magic with theirkeen sense of melody and harmony. Darell's driving attack and uncanny style of playing will have you sitting on the edge of your seat.  Yvonne and Allie back their vocals with a twin guitar attack, which is usually only seen in rock bands.  Bassist Brittney Hickey lays down a rock solid low-end groove with impeccable timing. Ethan Whitehair's advanced mandolin playing will leave you amazed.  Once you hear this band, you will see why they have captured the attention of many fans all over the state of Ohio and beyond.

The Heart of Ohio USA Days festival runs from June 24-27. Admission is free and open to the public.
