Beginning in 1975 when Gerry Gray, known as the "Mother Hen" was asked to play dulcimer and talk to visitors at the State Fair Pioneer Village, the Family Reunion String Band has entertained fairgoers for over thirty years. Playing for twelve hours a day for twelve days of the fair, the band is happy to see people come back year after year and become part of their extended family at the State Fair. Filled with jokes, improvisation, and good humor, the magnetism of the band and its members has encouraged enthusiastic listeners to become fellow musicians, making their performances into reunions of an ever-expanding musical family.
