Web Lead

Creston Valley musician Mark Koening will be joined by Miles WIlkinson in an April 12 concert.

Creston Valley singer-songwriter Mark Koenig will host an intimate evening of the songwriter and his songs at the Snoring Sasquatch on April 12.

Koenig, a Juno Award nominee and two-time Canadian Country Music Award nominee, will be joined by his lifelong friend Miles Wilkinson, a five-time Grammy-nominated producer/engineer and session sideman from Nashville, Tenn.

Wilkinson is best known for the records he has produced and engineered for many musicians. This includes such musicians as Anne Murray, Emmylou Harris, Guy Clark, Darrel Scott and too many more to mention, including Koenig.

Koenig got his start in the 1970s playing guitar and singing harmonies with Ann Murray. He also had the privilege of sitting beside renowned guitarist Lenny Breau for three years, who is quoted by Chet Atkins as “being the best guitarist on the planet.”

If you liked Koenig’s evening at the Snoring Sasquatch with Amos Garret and friends, then you’re sure to enjoy this evening.

Advance tickets are $12 in advance at Kingfisher Used Books or Black Bear Books, and $15 at the door, which opens at 6 p.m.; the show begins at 7.
