Well, we survived the Defeat of Jesse James Days! Things are still moving and shaking in Northfield!! Here are the 5 events/activities you won’t want miss this weekend!
- Chris Holm | Friday, September 16, 6:30pm | The Contented Cow
ed acoustic folk, blues and country musician Chris Holm returns in support of his debut solo release, “The Trains Don’t Run Here Anymore.” A fingerstyle guitar picker and harmonica player, Chris channels the high-spirited liveliness of Charley Patton, thumping on his suitcase drum, attacking his guitar strings with abandon and shouting along in a gravelly howl, later to channel the lonesome sounds of a weeping slide guitar and a blue yodel. Despite his Northern Minnesota roots, Chris has formed an intimate connection with the music of the American South. Raised on the music of Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Flatt & Scruggs, The Beatles and Creedence Clearwater Revival, he eventually dug into the music that inspired those great artists and discovered a deep appreciation for country blues and hillbilly country music.

- Dave Hudson | Sunday, September 18, 3-7:00pm | Froggy Bottoms River Pub & Lily Padio
After cutting his teeth with various college bands and acoustic duos, Dave Hudson made his way through the Minneapolis music scene writing and singing his own blend of melodic acoustic-rock music. His style has been compared to the likes of the Gin Blossoms, U2 and the Counting Crows. His self-styled mix of cover songs ranging from the ’80s, ’90s and today, blended with his own recorded and nationally released music, has kept crowds coming back for more. On the Lily PADio. Cancelled if bad weather.
