Frhennepin_homegrownDuluth’s favorite alt-country-ish band that plays in the key of G celebrates its 17th year together at this year’s Homegrown. Since forming in 1998 to play Homegrown before it was called Homegrown, the band has performed at all but two official Homegrowns — meaning this year makes it 15 of 17; more than any other band. The roster has seen a few minor tweaks over the years, but the basic framework for the vast majority of the Fat Hens’ existence has been Scott Lunt on guitar and vocals, Ted Anderson on guitar and vocals, Susan Ludwig on accordion, Bob Olson on bass and Brad Nelson on drums.
