Father Hennepin

Celebrating 21 years together at the 21st annual Homegrown, Father Hennepin continues its reign as the band with the most appearances at the festival. This will be the 19th time the Fat Hens have played Homegrown, having sat out only the 2006 and 2007 festivals. What’s the latest as the band carries on into its third decade? “We might have a new number or two,” says ringleader Scott “Starfire” Lunt, who in recent years has expanded artistic pursuits into quilting in addition to honky tonking. Taking the band to new levels in the past year has been the addition of Jimi Cooper as the third guitar player. The old-school lineup of regulars features Lunt and Ted Anderson on vocals and guitar, Suzi Ludwig on accordion and keyboards, Brad Nelson on drums, and Bob Olson on bass.
