On Friday, when Annie Humphrey and David Hackfeldt took the stage for their own concert, the music rang out from the heart of Headwaters Music & Arts in Bemidji. It was intended to serve as a celebration of Headwaters’ recently established Land Approval Statement, which was written in both and highlighted by the recent installation of a comprehensive sign made by Humphrey himself.
“I think it’s really important,” said Humphrey. “I think it’s important for companies and places.”
“So it’s like a family dinner table,” Huckfelt explains. “You want everyone to take their seats, right?”
Earlier in the day there was a smaller, more intimate concert for students performed by Humphrey as a way to inspire young musicians.
“I wish I had some of that kind of growth,” Humphrey explained. “No one ever told me that. You can really do something with this.”
The evening’s festivities were a warm celebration of progress and an opportunity for longtime friends to play together.
“After two and a half years of the pandemic, it feels good to connect with people, right?” Hackfeldt said.
All proceeds from the concert will go to the Headwaters Music & Arts Scholarship Fund.
