Oak Center regular Lorkovic to perform jazz and blues piano

OAK CENTER -- Radoslav Lorkovic, one of the most popular performers each year at the Oak Center General Store, returns to the stage for a concert at 8 p.m. March 2.

Lorkovic, who has developed an international reputation as a jazz and blues pianist since debuting at Oak Center a decade ago, will perform as a solo artist this time. Over the years, he also has appeared at the General Store over the years as an accompanist for a variety of artists, from Greg Brown to Claudia Schmidt.

A native of Zagreb, in what was then Yugoslavia, Lorkovic was trained as a classical musician, but eventually discovered the blues. He also has picked up the accordion to add a Cajun and Tex-Mex flavor to his music.

Among Lorkovic's five albums are two recorded in castles in Italy.

Tickets are $5 to $10, with patrons deciding how much they can afford to pay. For reservations, send a check in the proper amount to: Oak Center General Store, Route 1, Box 52BB, Lake City, MN 55041. For more information, call (507) 753-2080.
