Father Hennepin

What passes for hot news when you’ve been in a Duluth-based honkey-tonk band for 26 years? “Suzi bought a new accordion,” reports bandleader Scott “Starfire” Lunt. “It’s electronic. Made in Italy. It’s kind of exciting … for the sound people.” Susan Ludwig’s new squeeze box aside, Father Hennepin always seems to have something new at Homegrown, usually in the form of fresh songs and special guests. But the heart of it all is the familiar faces of Lunt, Ludwig and the rest of the crew: Ted Anderson on guitar and vocals, Bob Olson on bass, Brad Nelson on drums, and Jimi Cooper on guitar.
