The outdoor music fest season is far from over. Acoustic folk duo Storyhill (John Hermanson and Chris Cunningham) is hosting an in-state version of its successful Montana camp-outs called Storyhill Fest Midwest this weekend at a lakeside campground in Deerwood, two hours from the Cities. Other performers include Cliff Eberhardt, Romantica, Brenda Weiler and Justin Roth.
Closer to home this weekend, the 11th annual Laughing Waters Bluegrass Fest is once again taking place Sunday from 1-6:30 p.m. at the great gazebo in Minnehaha Falls park (by Sea Salt…. mmm). This one’s free and a lot of fun, with Free Range Pickin’, the Platte Valley Boys, Middle Spunk Creek Boys and some girls, too.
Next weekend (Sept. 10-12) is WookieFoot’s Harvest Fest down at Harmony Park, with Trampled by Turtles, That 1 Guy, Pert Near Sandstone, Fat Maw Rooney and almost 30 more acts.
