Bob Ford and the Ragamuffins will bring a taste of old-time entertainment to county stages this weekend for Live in the House shows.
The Ohio folk trio will perform Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in the Pemberville Opera House and Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Grand Rapids Town Hall.

Ford is a veteran performer on stage and as a school presenter. He's joined by his daughter Beth Ford, on vocals, electric bass and cello, and multi-instrumentalist Jan Finkle on guitar, flute, whistle and "whatever she can fit in her basket."
The band has two recordings, one devoted to fireside songs of the Old West and Irish tunes celebrating the seasons.
They're concert is filled with familiar folk songs made famous by the likes of  Burl Ives, Tommy Makem and the Kingston Trio.
Bill Kennedy in the Cleveland Plain Dealer said of his performance: "Bob Ford animates his tales of frontier America."
