COOK — “Music in the Park” weekly concerts will begin at 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 16, according to music coordinator, Eric Pederson. “The Beefeater Brothers” is Eric’s band and they will kick off the first performance for 2021 and many Wednesdays in Cook. Bring a lawn chair or sit in your car to hear the sound of music. Hungry? Enjoy St. Paul’s Lutheran Church (Alango) burger/brat stand. In case of a rainy Wednesday evening the concert will move to the Cook VFW.

The band includes Eric Pederson & Mike Randolph and will feature Jimmy Laine on drums and Anna Pederson on vocals. The band will also feature their large selection of musical friends that "sit in" on occasion.

"We are lucky to live in an area that supports live music" says Pederson. We also have an abundance of talent on the Iron Range.

It is more important than ever to support your local music scene. Facebook has become a great method to find where the music is playing. Check the business page for upcoming events. Sites like "Northwoods Music News", hosted by Richard George, does a wonderful service and posts most of the events every week on his posts. Let's hope we can get together and dance and sing soon!
