Glenn W. Kidder is a creative and diverse singer-songwriter, guitarist, and percussionist. His original songs cross the genres of folk-rock, blues, and country. He's a natural performer who creates a relaxed, intimate feel with his playful approach. His lyrics range from the crazy dance of love to Wild West saloons, blues bars and bucolic mountain ranges. Glenn's 'SideKicks' feature seasoned local musicians: Sherrie Hurst Pifer (vocals, percussion), Steve Bowers (bass), and Randy Cheryl Pritt (drums).

Glenn was a full-time solo performer before becoming a founding member of the successful Central PA acoustic folk-rock band Cartoon, which released 4 CD’s. They were a staple act at the Central PA Festival of the Arts until Cartoon disbanded in 2012. Glenn continues to perform there annually with 2 former bandmates as Hughes, Kidder & Rounds. Their first CD, “The Schoolhouse Project,” was released in July, 2016.
Kidder moved to the Alleghany Highlands of Virginia in 2013, where the peaceful mountain setting serves as inspiration for new songs.
Remember back to last August, the night we first hosted the stellar singing duo 2 for Fun? All was perfect…until the sky unzipped and produced a truly impressive downpour. Yes, the heartiest souls stayed under the big tent to catch the second act (you know who you are, Clifton Forge High School alumni!), but most of the crowd headed for their cars. Thankfully, life is filled with second chances, and here is your chance to catch 2 for Fun again. This year, we’ll simply move inside if Mother Nature wants to try to spoil the show.
Brian Bleakley and Steve Ambrose are 2 for Fun. Both Brian and Steve are lead singers with the international recording artists The Original Rhondels. In addition to performing with the Rhondels, Brian and Steve have combined their talents and enjoy entertaining an even wider variety of audiences. Both musicians have travelled around the country and into the Caribbean, performing for audiences for more than 35 years.
Rain or shine, this time it's all about the fun!
