Jessie Veeder

Watford City based singer/songwriter and Nashville recording artist Jessie Veeder will be headlining a concert on the Medora Musical stage on Saturday, July 18th at 3:30 pm as part of the Medora Musical's 50th Anniversary Celebration and Medora's Country Concert Series.

Veeder has been touring on behalf of her recently released Nashville effort and fourth original studio album Northern Lights

According to Veeder, the Medora concert will be the icing on a summer filled with sold out performances and CD Release concerts.

"Performing on the Medora Musical stage is extra special for me because Medora is the place where I performed my first big concerts and my first original song. It has been such a supportive and inspiring place, it will be awesome to be back up on that stage surrounded by the beautiful badlands and singing songs off of my new album so many years later," said Veeder.

Veeder will be joined by her father, Gene, who has been playing alongside her since she first began performing and Watford City musician Mike Endrud along with her popular Dickinson, ND based band Outlaw Sippin'.

Veeder, a well-known statewide columnist who has traveled the country performing her original music, has been a symbol of folk music in the badlands of Western North Dakota since she released her first original album when she was only 16 years old. She's known for her heartfelt performances where she shares stories about life on her family's cattle ranch in Western North Dakota and the people who make up her ever-changing hometown of Watford City. Her 2012 song "Boomtown" received international attention for the way it captured the lives and spirit of the characters who have come to Western North Dakota to make a new life.

Jessie's new release, Northern Lights, brought her to Nashville to record with Bill Warner, a producer who has worked with artists such as Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, Mindy Smith and Trisha Yearwood, among others. Backed by some of the best players in the industry, Jessie's skill as a heart wrenching songwriter soars in the new songs that remain rooted in the stories of the people and landscape of her home in Western North Dakota. The highly anticipated release is some of Jessie's best work yet.

"What's most impressive about Veeder is her remarkable ability to express her true character and life experiences through song," says the High Plains Reader. "She can write meaningful lyrics, craft appealing music and express herself openly and then have these elements converge in the most beautiful way. 'Northern Lights' is proof of this."
