Final Show of the Season!! Erik Koskinen to Close Out Silver Bay Music In The Park Concert Series on September 1st

(FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE August 28, 2023 – Silver Bay, MN) – Today, Rocky Wall Productions announced that ERIK KOSKIN­EN will close out the 2023 Silver Bay Music In The Park Concert Series at the City Center Park stage in downtown Silver Bay at 7:30 p.m., Friday, September 1st. This is the final free Friday night concert of the 2023 season.

“We are thrilled to have Erik Koskinen and his band close out our 2023 concert season” said Rocky Wall Productions President Nel­son French, “Koskinen’s songs are stripped-down, breathe the Midwestern air, paint character portraits, and have a deceptively haunting quality. He’s the perfect musician to send us off into fall and winter.”

Koskinen’s influences run deep. He was born in Colorado to a mother from Wichita Falls, TX, and a dad from Helsinki, Finland. His major influence growing up, primarily through his dad was singing cowboys, in­spired by the Gene Autry and Roy Rogers TV shows, and later through music festivals. Like his parents, Koskinen’s led a nomadic existence from New York state to Michigan and to Minneapolis, where he finally found a group of musicians that played patiently and shared his vision, and finally to rural Minne­sota. He’s also spent time in Nashville and California, seeking his musical muse. Along the way, through construction work and oth­er jobs, he’s been a keen observer of small towns and rural life. His music reflects that and much more.

This FREE outdoor concert will be held on Friday, September 1st at Silver Bay’s City Center Park near City Hall. You are en­couraged to bring a lawn chair and blanket for comfort. Feel free to show up downtown anytime after 6:00 pm. Emma’s Kitchen, and The Treat Trike will be on site to meet your food, beverage, and sweet needs. Zoe’s Piz­za Kitchen, 96 Outer Drive, also serves from their menu until 8:00 p.m. There may also be several local craft vendors on site.

In the event of inclement weather, the con­cert will be moved indoors to the Reunion Hall, 97 Outer Drive, Silver Bay.
