Natascha Myers brings a fusion of styles to the Nashville scene. A style she calls; "Midwest-bred Americana with a dash of country western and old soul.” Natascha grew up in Waterloo, Iowa and still enjoys those fond memories and close connections today: "I have Iowa (and family) to thank for being passionate about strangers’ stories, the value of a hard day’s work, and how to keep both feet on the ground when you need to.” 

Horse and pony lovers, come as you are! The North Iowa Fair's Five Dollar Pony Rides return this July 18-21 (weather permitting); don't let the youngsters you know and love miss out. Pony rides will start outdoors at 11am each day to continue until sunset; buggy rides will also be offered for additional cost.
