Bluegrass Battles Hunger

A 2-day concert this weekend in St. Joseph will not just offer bluegrass, but help a regional charity.

"Bluegrass Battles Hunger" features 7 bands as far away as Colorado, as well as local favorite Jason Riley's Funky Folk, originally from Tarkio and now in St. Joseph. Organizer Chad Higdon says the admission is canned food for Second Harvest Community Food Bank. Higdon says the idea started from a leadership St. Joseph project, but also has a personal meaning for him.
