Music in the Park on tap Sunday in Longville

This summer's first Music in the Park event will begin at 5 p.m. Sunday, June 22, at the gazebo on the park-like grounds of Salem Lutheran Church in Longville.

Walker, Minnesota, teen brothers Jacob and Owen Mahon as Hog Rooster will perform first, followed by Twin Cities performers Amy and Adams.

Jacob and Owen do harmonic rock, folk and original songs. Amy and Adams perform inspiring, upbeat music from a variety of genres, including folk rock, tin pan alley, bluegrass and others.

Jacob and Owen Mahon started playing together as Hog Rooster in 2012. A year older than Owen, Jacob plays guitar, mandolin, ukulele and piano and is lead vocalist. Owen plays bass, trumpet and sings the harmony for many of the teen duo's songs.

For nearly two decades, Amy and Adams have performed in Minnesota, the Midwest and beyond. They perform tunes from the 1920s through the 1960s along with orginal songs accompanied by guitars, ukuleles, mandolin, keyboard and flutes in harmonies.

They have produced five CD albums. Their latest album, "Gone ... aloft," celebrates an eclectic blend of original arrangements, vocals and instrumentals.

Admission is free, but freewill offerings are appreciated. Parking space is available. Bring lawn chairs, blankets and picnic food. Popcorn and lemonade will be available for donations to World Vision to provide clean water in Africa.

In case of inclement weather, the event will be held inside the church.

Upcoming Sunday Music in the Park performers include Twin Cities jazz singer Rhonda Laurie and The Happy Days Trio on July 6; The Platte Valley Boys on July 27; and vocalist/guitarist Michael Hirst on Aug. 17.
