Join us for an evening of American roots music as Erik Koskinen
and his band return to the VFW. Boston-based artist Jeremy Moses Curtis
is touring in support of his new release “Midlife Chrysler”
and will kick off the night.
is an American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, whose music is not categorized by sub-genres. Stylistically he is on his own. Influenced by roots music of the Americas and the world, the rhythmic integrity and musical tone are as important as the lyrical content and the artistic intent.
Sprouted from a blend of American folk, country, rock-n-roll, and blues, Erik Koskinen and his top-shelf band realize a sound that is distinctive and fresh while familiar and classic. Koskinen’s albums are a lyrical and musical metaphor of America’s theaters of war, history, relationships, and reflections in the mirror. “Burning The Deal” was produced by Koskinen and Bernie Larsen (Melissa Etheridge, Jackson Browne) and recorded by Jason Mariani (Mumford & Sons, Kenny Loggins) at Brotheryn Studios in Ojai, California.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune calls Koskinen “the real deal” and “the best country songwriter in Minnesota.”

“Midlife Chrysler is the kind of record it takes a lifetime of music to make … I hear Tweedy in the magpie eclecticism, Prine in the strangeness that lands, Bobby Charles in the patient groove. American music is starving. This is a banquet.”– Jeffrey Foucault
