American Idol finalist Brandon Elder to perform
at Ehrhardt's 2018 Schuetzenfest!

Brandon Elder will be headlining at our annual Schuetzenfest in Ehrhardt, SC, this year, and we are expecting a large crowd! Brandon wrote a song about his adoptive mother and played it using only two chords and stunned the world on American Idol. He was a finalist, but more importantly, his performance earned him the the Golden Ticket to Hollywood, so we'll be sure to see him again. This event promises to be a crowd-pleaser, since we'll be able to see him perform in person. Be sure not to miss this special event on August 18th, 2018, starting at 8pm.
