BLOOMSBURG, PA- This year at the 167th annual Bloomsburg Fair, Joan Jett is setting the stage with a strong heart and a “bad reputation” for rock’ n’ roll as she continues to defy the odds. Jett was raised in an era when women were excluded from participating in rock ‘n’ roll, but as a teenager, she blasted her way into the boys’ club. Jett continues to be a strong, feminine influence and an inspiration to generations of fans around the world amidst a career that has encompassed music, tv, Broadway, philanthropy and more.
