Music lovers filled historic downtown Hastings on Saturday evening for some live tunes and charity as a part of Hootenanny IX.

Over 120 musicians played across eight different venues in Hastings: The Busted Nut; Onion Grille; 2nd Street Depot; American Legion; Spiral Brewery; Lock & Dam Eatery; Country Nites Saloon; Fireside Social House; and Me & Julio. Admission was free, but a $5 donation to Hastings Middle School music programs was suggested.

According to the Hootenanny's website, $10,000 was raised.
