No band has played Homegrown more times than Father Hennepin. The band celebrates its 18th year at the 2016 festival, on the same day its ringleader Scott “Starfire” Lunt celebrates his 48th birthday. Since forming in 1998 to play Homegrown before it was called Homegrown, the band has missed playing the festival only twice. The lineup features Lunt on guitar and vocals, Ted Anderson on guitar and vocals, Susan Ludwig on accordion, Bob Olson on bass and Brad Nelson on drums. They don’t play many non-Homegrown gigs these days, but plan to tear things up at the adult prom at Little Nikki’s Bar & Grill in Cornucopia on April 16.

8:30pm Sat 5/7 at Red Herring Lounge
