Mid West Music Fest is pleased to announce the hire of Sam Thueson as the new Executive Director of the organization.

Sam studied Music Industry at St Mary's University, and went on to work in audio, lighting and events management, most recently at Island City Brewing Co.

“I've had great experiences at MWMF as a tech, venue manager and attendee. I really love that MWMF’s mission involves stimulating downtown economic development and providing educational opportunities to community members. Winona has become my home for over 7 years and I'm excited to be apart of something that supports my community!”
