Mark Wehner Premiers his new song “Campfire Blues”

Mark Wehner, who fought repeated bouts with sarcoma, used his music to bring hope and joy to others. A music teacher for over 30 years with the Osseo-Fairchild, WI school district, Mark premiered his new song, with lyrics by Brian Bethke, “Campfire Blues”, at the 2014 Party in the Park with Brian Bethke. Their moving performance was greeted by a standing ovation. The song is a strong testament to determination and hope as people face sarcoma and try to “rein in the disease”.Party-Weher-Mark-Campfire-Blues
