Can you believe it’s already July? Minnesota summers are way too short!! Here are a few great activities and events you won’t want to miss this weekend – plus our entire weekend events calendar!
This hometown, father/daughter duo are excited to play together once again. Maren (Wasner) Brogger is back in Northfield (and married) after nearly 9 years in Nashville, while Craig Wasner (best known for his work with the “Over & Back Band”) has decided to focus more time on playing and recording in his studio. Together, their style is a blend of folk and country with a smattering of blue and funk — resulting in a live performance that’s not to be missed!http://www.myspace.com/
