RiverSong is Minnesota’s homegrown music festival on the music scene for a decade. It’s proudly one of Minnesota’s most affordable music festivals, where we work hard to offer value-priced tickets to make RiverSong affordable to everyone. Thanks to our sponsors, volunteers, and attendees, RiverSong continues to be a “must-attend” festival in the heart of summer.
So Pat, you’ve attended RiverSong for many years and are an avid volunteer. Inquiring minds want to know:
What is your Minnesota tie?
I’m a life-long resident of Hutchinson!
What is your favorite thing about RiverSong?
Everyone enjoying themselves; attendees, performers, and workers.
Share your top memory of RiverSong over the years.
This may sound strange as a favorite memory, but a couple years ago a big storm hit us just before the Saturday night feature act. Quick action and thinking by the Riversong staff and workers, along with the cooperation of many individuals, the main act relocated to a local bar and played their music to many excited and grateful fans.
What are your top 5 favorite performers of all time?
Every year there is great music, not picking 5 favorites because I probably haven’t heard them yet.
If you were to offer a tip to someone attending for the first time this year, what would it be?
Bring a comfortable chair, empty stomach, dry throat, and be prepared for some of the best music in the greatest outdoor venue that you’ll ever experience.
