            The Kodiak Chapter of the Future Farmers of America is holding its Fun on the Farm event out at the Kodiak Island Fairgrounds on Saturday, and it will be full of, well, farm fun.

            That's 10-year-old Sawyer Olsen playing. He's a fifth-grader at Northstar Elementary. Not only will he be performing with The Fiddleheads, but he will also be headlining with his own backing band:

            The FFA's Fun on the Farm will be Saturday evening from 5 to 8 p.m., and there's no admission charge.

            I'm Jay Barrett.
