Kicking off the 2017 Music in the Park series from 5-7 p.m. Sunday, June 18, at the gazebo in the park area at Salem Lutheran Church in Longville will be Pushing Chain, a vocal duo that performs "folky-tonk" music throughout the Upper Midwest.

The award-winning duo from the Minnesota North Shore features Boyd Blomberg on guitar and Adam Moe on fiddle. Writing many of their own songs, they believe in strong harmonies, kazoos and sad songs, and said their music can cause tears and laughter in one song.

Blomberg and Moe have been singing together since 1997 and recorded their first album a year later. For the past five years they have been singing as Pushing Chain.

Bring lawn chairs, blankets and a picnic lunch. Admission is free; however, freewill donations are appreciated. Popcorn and lemonade will be available.

In case of rain, the concert will take place inside the church.
