On Tuesday, July 5, hundreds gathered outside of the North Dakota Museum of Art to see Charlie Parr, an internationally renowned bluegrass and folk musician.

The Midnights, who opened for Charlie Parr, formed in the summer of 2007, with Mr. Joe Greenwood bringing some of his home-spun tunes. The name is derived from the band’s rehearsal time slot from 12:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. The rehearsal time was a unique requirement for the Midnights, as Greenwood could only rehearse after he got off work from the Grand Forks Herald newspaper.
