I hope everyone is staying healthy in this difficult time. Nora and I are safe and sound, and tonight I will be performing my first virtual concert of the quarantine on YouTube. It will be live at 7:00 PM Central Time this evening (April 14th).
Where to watch:
Bring your popcorn, tomatoes, settle in with the family for some instrumental guitar and hang out.
The concert is completely free, but If you would like to make a donation you can do so with paypal at paypal.me/markkroos or venmo @markkroos. There is absolutely no obligation or expectation, but any and all donations are welcome and appreciated.
About the concert:
A few weeks ago, my friend Charles Grawe in the Twin Cities asked if I would do a “virtual home concert.” Charles has brought me in for a few concerts when I’ve toured through Minnesota in the past, both at his house and at his church. Initially, I thought he wanted to do something like a house concert on facetime with a small group, but Charles wanted to open it up to everyone. So in honor of Charles, I’ve made this a concert specifically geared toward the Northern Plains; the “Minnesota Quarantine Concert” if you will. Everyone is welcome, just don’t be surprised if we bring up things like hot dish, Juicy Lucies, Ice fishin’, Taco John’s, great big mosquitoes…ya know, Minnesota things!
The concert will likely go about 45 minutes, but I’ll probably hang around and do some Q&A afterwards.
I hope to see you there!
Tune in tonight (April 14th) for my “Gig From Home” with reverb.com at 7 PM CST – I’ll play my new album ‘25 Trips’ from start to finish (solo) with some stories!
