MWMF Presents Live Events
For many years, Mid West Music Fest has partnered with the venues that help us present the fest, area schools, the City of Winona, and other like-minded organizations to present concerts outside the actual festival weekends. These shows help us to showcase the region’s talent, build relationships with musicians and their fans and management teams.
We have also used these events to help further our community work and to launch new initiatives. Most recently, we started Echo of the Bluebird, a series meant to showcase songwriters and their process and stories behind writing original works. The name is a nod to the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, which has helped songwriters to launch new material for decades.
