Son Volt, Jay Farrar, Bottlerockets, Richard Buckner and Anders Parker to perform
Jay Farrar, St. Louis resident and founder of both Uncle Tupelo and Son Volt, will unite musicians from across the country for an evening of performances in support of Karl Mueller, Alejandro Escovedo and Habitat for Humanity St. Louis. The first annual Mound City Music Fest, a special night of music, will be presented by KDHX at Mississippi Nights in St. Louis on Saturday, December 11, 2004. In the same way that Habitat for Humanity unites people from the community to help one another, Jay has invited his fellow musicians to come together for the benefit of other musicians in need as well as the local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity.

Mound City Music Fest will mark the inaugural performance of Son Volt with a line-up that includes Jay Farrar, Dave Bryson, Andrew Duplantis and Brad Rice. The night also features special sets by Jay Farrar, Bottlerockets, Richard Buckner and Anders Parker. The evening will end in collaboration.
