THE CAUSE: Lake Pepin Legacy Alliance (LPLA) advocates for upstream sediment reduction and local sediment management to improve water quality, habitat, and accessibility in this vital stretch of the Mississippi River. With sedimentation rates 10x above normal, the lake is in a fight for survival. It has two water quality impairments and is expected to prematurely disappear in just a few generations.

The concert will honor Terry Woeltge, an avid Lake Pepin sailor and LPLA member, who passed away in 2019. Terry’s family established a memorial fund to honor his legacy.

THE VENUE: Liberty Tree Farm is a unique outdoor concert venue with a renovated open-barn stage surrounded by forest and trails. Wooden benches with backrests, picnic tables, firepit, and trails are available for attendees to enjoy. A modern building has restrooms with clean portable toilets. Outdoor parking is available for as many cars as needed. Only a short walk from parking to the stage area.

THE BAND: The Pistol Whippin' Party Penguins are a bluegrass string band with original songs about the river. From their website:

Straight from the great Mill City comes the Pistol Whippin Party Penguins. Don't let the name fool you! This is not a violent group of flightless aquatic birds looking for a party, but rather 5 self-proclaimed gentlemen, 2 guitars, a mandolin, a bucket of fiddles, an upright bass, a banjo, and a 4 part vocal harmony... As they prepare to release their 4th studio album this fall/winter, this quintet from Minneapolis strives to maintain the original spirit of the "string band" while continuing to play new original music and creative cover songs. The combination of folk, rock, blues, bluegrass, and the occasional stage banter will create an experience that anyone can enjoy!
