Twenty years of homegrown: Starting out as a birthday party for Duluth local Scott Lunt, the first homegrown music festival was a couple of bands; friends of Scott. The festival has now grown to a full-fledged eight day festival with almost 200 bands. Including renowned acts like Low, Trampled by Turtles, Charlie Parr, Gaelynn Lea, Haley (Bonar) and more. Taking place April 29th - May 6th, the festival will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year. On top of the music, the festival will include a children's music showcase, poetry, and art. I spoke with executive director, Melissa La Tour about the upcoming event.
