Minot Daily News Columnist and singer/songwriter Jessie Veeder has released a new book, "Coming Home," a visual journey through the seasons that includes beautiful photography, poetry, recipes, stories and memories carefully handpicked from Jessie’s collection, and she's bringing her stories and songs to the Taube Museum of Art in Minot.
About: Jessie Veeder has always found a certain kind of magic in the buttes and coulees of her family’s ranch in Western North Dakota where she grew up. The middle of three daughters born to a third generation rancher and musician, Jessie has been singing and writing about her love of the landscape and rural lifestyle since she was given a blank book at the age of eight and told to write it all down, an effort that led her to record four original albums, the first at age 16, and tour the country talking and singing to audiences about the remote home she loved.
Since 2010 Jessie and her husband, Chad, have worked alongside her father as the fourth generation stewards of the 100-year-old Veeder Ranch. Upon moving back to the ranch where she was raised, Jessie began photographing her home and writing about what it means to come back to a familiar place that raised you on her popular blog, “Meanwhile, back at the ranch…”. Her work landed her a job writing a weekly column for statewide newspapers where her straight-to-the-heart reflections prove that out here on the North Dakota plains, every story is dictated by the change of a season or a shift in the weather.
Coming Home is a visual journey through the seasons that includes beautiful photography, poetry, recipes, stories and memories carefully handpicked from Jessie’s collection to tell the story of why the prairie continues to pull us home.
The Coming Home Concert will take a walk through the seasons, featuring stories, readings and music inspired by buttes, coulees, cowboys, horses and family that influenced and inspired Jessie. Listeners will leave feeling nostalgic, uplifted and inspired to climb to the top of their favorite hill and watch the sunrise.
