A small item at the bottom of Queen Miranda reigns over WE Fest, an article in the DL-Online about the annual country music gathering:
* WE Fest has some friends in high places. Rep. Collin Peterson from Minnesota’s Seventh Congressional District, which includes Moorhead and Detroit Lakes, was out here Friday. Apparently Peterson is a country music fan and a regular at the annual event. Festival owner Rand Levy said Peterson and Minn. Sen. Al Franken wrote letters supporting Levy’s offer to hold a future Farm Aid concert, organized by Willie Nelson, one of Friday’s performers. This year’s Farm Aid will be held in Kansas City. [link added] The event has never been held in Minnesota.
Nelson played We Fest this week; the Fargo Forum reviews the show in No surprise, Willie plays like a legend.
It's a great idea to see if Farm Aid will come to Minnesota. But just shoot me if Peterson's reunited band, The Second Amendments, plays at Farm Aid again, wherever it's held.
