The 2000 Austin High School grad is making a name for herself in the music scene with a blues-rock sound. She released her third album, “Live My Life,” last fall and recently got back from a European tour.
Ehrhardt started playing music in Austin at a young age, taking piano lessons from Jan Muzik and other Austin residents. But at Austin High School, she focused more on sports, especially track and field and volleyball. She would come back to playing music through Austin bands like Plan B after she graduated from St. Cloud State and earned a master’s in health care administration from the University of Minnesota.
Together with Allen, Ehrhardt promises a lower-key version of her show as well as classic rock influences performed acoustically.
“We’ve actually incorporated quite a bit of different material in our acoustic show,” she said. “Our set will be a combination of our original songs and some classics that we’ve adapted.”
The concert, which also serves as a dessert event, will start at 8 p.m.with opener Ken Valdez. Ehrhardt and Allen will take the stage at 9 p.m. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $25 per person.
