Concert Schedule


Friday, March 21
Steve Poltz
[Special guest Michael Tiernan]

Steve Poltz closes out the Rock in the Park concert series. Poltz is one of the most beloved songwriters of his generation. His music—as both a solo artist and with cult legends The Rugburns—has enjoyed long stretches in the Billboard top ten, gobbled up acres of mainstream radio and appeared in scores of television shows, commercials and movies. He has collaborated with everyone from Jewel to Glenn Tillbrook to Mojo Nixon, and his legendary live show has earned him a ferocious global fan base. He has recently released his 13th full-length album, titled Noineen Noiny Noin.


Special Guest: Michael Tiernan

Michael Tiernan opens each show. He hung with monks deep in desert monasteries and lived in the Vatican, but he left the seminary for the higher calling of music, and has since racked up several national and international awards for his songwriting. His acoustic blend has a relaxed vibe mixed with a big city sound. Deep in meaning, yet playful in attitude, Michael’s music takes you from the temple to the tavern and from the beach to downtown.
