Michael Monroe at the Frozen Apple

Michael Monroe

Acoustic artist Michael Monroe is bringing his feel-good blend of folk, jazz and reggae to Apple Valley this weekend as part of the Frozen Apple concert series sponsored by the Apple Valley Arts Foundation.

The concert – which runs from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2 at the Valleywood Golf Course clubhouse – will mark the release of Monroe’s new CD, “Time to Get Away.” A resident of Minnesota’s North Shore who lives and records his music in a solar-powered log cabin, Monroe has become a familiar face in Dakota County in recent years with his performances at the annual Music in Kelley Park summer concerts, as well as last’s year inaugural Frozen Apple.

Admission is free to this weekend’s performance; food and beverages, including a full bar, will be available for purchase, and there also will be prize drawings for books, a digital camera and an acoustic guitar, which were donated by local merchants.
