The concert event, titled The Harvest Ball, is an annual event presented by the Minnesota State Mankato Performance Series and KMSU The Maverick with assistance from the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.

Since moving to Minneapolis 18 years ago, Koskinen has amassed a following as a musician, songwriter, producer, and engineer. Koskinen has the ability to create a song and a sound that feels natural, intimate, and exciting all at the same time.

American Roots (United Kingdom) writes, “Erik is very much his own man stylistically. Subgenres are no use at all in describing Erik's music and perhaps a new genre is more appropriate.”  Jon Bream of the Minneapolis Star Tribune calls Erik Koskinen “…the state’s best pure country singer/songwriter.”

The supporting act, City Mouse, performs folk-rock blues-styled music and has been appreciated in the region for over 50 years. The group remains strong today as the current band lineup has enjoyed 37-plus years of performing together.

City Mouse has played thousands of gigs and was an annual staple at Mankato’s People’s Fair and the Rockin’ in the Quarry event each summer. City Mouse performs annually and remains a fan favorite at the Rock Bend Folk Festival in St. Peter.

Concert admission is $15 in advance and $20 the day of the show!
