Ski Party // Erik Koskinen
Ski Party is a weekend ski, snowboard and music festival curated by the folks at GNDWIRE Records. It's a throwback to a time when skiing was cool and sexy. It's a look forward to new music and a modern mountain resort. But mostly, it's a party - friends new and old hangin' on the slopes, in the chalets and enjoying great music. So come on guys and gals, please join us, for the 4th annual Ski Party.
"The best country songwriter in Minnesota, Erik Koskinen doesn't sing about tailgating, partying with babes and driving down dirt roads. He's more old school, with a focus on working-class themes, whether it's about the effects of oil in "Boomtown," the calling of a musician in "Six Pack of Beer and a Pack of Cigarettes" or the challenges of being unemployed on Independence Day in "Slow Burn." Those tunes are on his splendid second album, "America Theatre," a collection that would make Merle Haggard proud."
