Americana at its best. Minneapolis-based songwriter Erik Koskinen returns to Sacred Heart in support of his 2019 album “Burning the Deal.”

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. Knowing but not didactic, Koskinen channels the ways of Whitman and reverently enters the anthology of uniquely crafted wry songs with the likes of Woody Guthrie and Ry Cooder while speaking as plainly as your neighbor. The Minneapolis Star Tribune calls Koskinen “the real deal” and “the best country songwriter in Minnesota.”

“Burning the Deal,” his fourth studio album, was released in June.

Tickets $10 in advance/$15 at the door. Doors open at 6:30, music at 7:00.
