Singer comes home to perform

Published 10:07am Thursday, September 13, 2012

An Albert Lea native is coming home again, but this time to perform at the Lighthouse Event Center.

Jim Anthony will perform with Steve Parry at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Born and raised in Albert Lea, Jim Komoszewski began his musical journey by teaching himself to play guitar at age 17. Parry is from Stillwater. The two will sing about their stories of American life in a way that connects with audiences.

“This is two great singer-songwriters for the price of one — don’t miss this show,” Lighthouse owner Celeste Krause said.

Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. Advance tickets are available at Marshall Street Music, Hy-Vee and Stadheim Jewelers in Albert Lea and Coffee House on Main in Austin.
