Jam Out At The 2022 Hometown Sampler Concert Series

The Hometown Sampler is an iconic regional event that marks a weekend of performances featuring talented local musicians. The proceeds from the event support the Steele County Food Shelf (now known as The Marketplace).

On Tuesday, two members from Turn the Page and Bad Tangerines performed a tiny sneak peek at the KRFO studios. Check it out.

To enjoy more great songs like this one, head on over to the Little Theatre of Owatonna Friday, March 4th at 7 pm, Saturday, March 5th at 3 pm or 7 pm, or Sunday, March 6th at 2 pm.
