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. Koskinen has been promoting his new album to rave reviews throughout the region.

Minnesota-based singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and engineer Erik Koskinen has released four independent albums since 2010. He has played over 500 dates, sold in excess of 5,000 independent albums, and amassed over 300,000 digital streams. Koskinen has also recorded albums with and for Trampled by Turtles, Dead Man Winter, The Lowest Pair, The Waifs, Frankie Lee, The 4ontheFloor, and Haley Bonar.

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.

As the Rochester music scene continues to grow, and hosted music events are becoming more popular, Grand Oak Opry hopes to add to the opportunities for live music.
