Tonight at 6pm, tune into Radio Heartland for a songwriters-in-the-round concert from the Americana Showcase series in Rochester, Minnesota. Series organizer Brandon Sampson and Nashville singer-songwriters Sally Barris and Don Henry are featured.

Brandon Sampson is a founding member of the band Six Mile Grove, originally from Lyle, Minnesota.

Sally Barris grew up in the Twin Cities and fell in love with acoustic music after a visit to the Homestead Pickin' Parlor in Richfield. She resolved to start writing and singing her own songs, which she still does today in Nashville, Tennesee.

Don Henry is a Nashville veteran as a singer and songwriter, and a Grammy winner for a tune he co-wrote with Jon Vezner, "Where've You Been".

The concert can be heard on Radio Heartland ( (91.1 HD 2 in Minneapolis and St. Paul) this evening at 6pm and Wednesday afternoon, February 10th, at 1pm.
