South Dakota Web Roundup
Sep 21, 2012
Music is in the air this weekend. Prairie Berry Winery is hosting the last of their Summer Music Series concerts tonight, but the fun will continue on Saturdays in October at their annual Pumpkin Bog Fest. Cowboy music, stories and poetry take center stage at Hot Springs' annual celebration honoring South Dakota's first poet laureate, Badger Clark. Old time music lovers will converge, fiddles, accordions and harmonicas in hand, for the 40th annual South Dakota Old Time Fiddlers Contest in Yankton.
There's a winner in the songwriters competition of the Americana Music Festival, but sadly, Ted "Flowerman" Heeren of Rock Garden Tour fame will not be present to perform his song, Sweet Home South Dakota, as had been originally planned. There'll be plenty of other South Dakota musicians at the Rapid City event, as well as children's activities, a vintage instrument display and workshops.
