If it's the Bluegrass in Super Class Festival in Perrysburg, then that must mean Rhonda Vincent and the Rage are in town.

The bluegrass superstar will play at the festival this weekend for the third year in a row, heating up the winter air with strikingly fast instrumental breakdowns and heart-wrenching ballads. Vincent has worked with Dolly Parton and Keith Urban, among others. She and her band are known for bluegrass, gospel music, and traditional country.

Friday's concert at the Holiday Inn French Quarter, 10630 Fremont Pike in Perrysburg, will start at 12:30 p.m. and run until 11:30 p.m. Performing will be Jr. Sisk & Rambler's Choice, Deepwater Bluegrass, Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road, Larry Gillis & Swamp Grass, and Idle Tyme

Saturday's concert starts at noon and goes until 11:30 p.m. and along with Vincent, performers will include Bluegrass Mountaineers, Matheson Family Pride, Remington Ryde, and Bo Isaac & the Rounders.

General seating is $25 per day. Children 12 and younger are free.

In addition to the concerts there will be informal jams, workshops, and band members available for autographs and selling CDs.
