Aug 31: Grand Oak Opry Presents Erik Koskinen in Rochester!

Grand Oak Opry is ‘branching out’ – and we’re thrilled to have Erik Koskinen play at a new site with new partners in Rochester!

“Koskinen specializes in workingman’s blues, the hard work and good times of life in the hardscrabble region of his youth. In addition to his own brand of Americana music, Koskinen is sought after as a guitarist and producer by bands like Trampled by Turtles.” -Rochester Post

On Saturday, August 31st at 7:00 pm (gate opens at 6:00), Grand Oak Opry will host a Rochester concert with Erik W. Koskinen. The address for the site is 6513 W River Rd NW, Rochester, MN 55901-2144. Here’s a map link.

We ask that you bring your own chair/blanket, and anything that you like to eat or drink. (Adult beverages allowed.) We provide an onsite bathroom in our house but please “drink responsibly” . No animals allowed.

This summer for the first time, and in partnership with The Jive Mill and Root River Jam, Grand Oak Opry is ‘branching out’ to Rochester, MN. The event is sponsored by MinnWest Bank, Solar Connection, Thesis Beer Project, and Stogies on Grand in St. Paul.

Koskinen has been promoting his new album to rave reviews throughout the region. Check it out here:
