Thankful Dirt to perform Thursday, preceded by water wars
Darren and Molly Matthews, the Indie/Americana Des Moines-based duo Thankful Dirt, will perform on the 2nd Street Stage from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 9, preceded by water wars at 6 p.m. Though their musical backgrounds differ, electricity sparks when they write and perform songs. Molly's voice - ethereal, complex, and evocative - complements Darren's masterful guitar playing. Together, they ignite a sound both unique and universally appealing. Park Rapids Downtown Business Association hosts the event that includes a beer garden with snacks and other activities on 2nd Street between Main Avenue and Highway 71.
