Father Hennepin

Father Hennepin plays mostly original country songs that roll like the hills over Riverside, twang like a pickup on the Blatnik Bridge and sound as sweet as a summer day on Park Point beach. Led by Homegrown founding father and birthday boy Scott “Starfire” Lunt, the band features Ted Anderson on guitar and vocals, Bob Olson on bass, Brad Nelson on drums, Susie Ludwig on keys and Jimi Cooper on guitar. Among the cover songs that often land in a Fat Hens set is the anthem “I Like it in Duluth,” originally recorded by the Moose Wallow Ramblers in 1976 and cemented into the city’s musical canon by Starfire and company.
