Music Under the Water Tower is a family-friendly concert series in Donnellson, Iowa featuring a variety of mostly acoustic music including Americana, folk, blues, jazz, and bluegrass musical acts. Held inside the town’s American Legion Hall—located under the water tower, as the name suggests—the series was started by Doug Seyb in 2003, with the mission of introducing the local community to music they would not otherwise be exposed to. The atmosphere of the concerts is casual and concert-goers are encouraged to bring their own drinks and potluck dish, and make a suggested donation of $10 at the door.
