Ever wanted to take a trip to western North Dakota?
Well then it seems it’s time to visit the beautiful Medora in the badlands of my home state on July 18th. I’ll be performing on the Burning Hills Amphitheater, a stage dedicated to a nightly outdoor musical every summer night set against the backdrop of the painted buttes.
Medora was one of my first stages and the first place I performed an original song, so this concert, in conjunction with the release of my new album, Northern Lights, is extra special to me.
Know what else is cool? If you comment on Medora’s Facebook link with your favorite Jessie Veeder song, you’ll be entered for a chance to win free tickets!
This week’s column is about what it meant to me to be given a chance to sing on this bustling little tourist town in the badlands when I was just a 12 year old ranch kid.

I hope to see you there. I can’t wait for you to hear the new songs!
I wish North Dakota was a bit closer to Oregon! Perhaps you will perform at the Oregon Jamboree in the future.
Last time I was in the badlands of North Dakota, many years ago, Rick and I were camping with a friend in the national park. A tornado landed halfway between us and the KOA campground to the south. We lost our tent and we headed for Rapid City that night, happy to be alive. That is some beautiful, and wild, country you are in.
Beautiful album cover, Jessie. Keep singing and playing.
