Labor Day weekend events at Mancos State Park include a performance by two well-regarded musicians, Sandy Hoagland and Tom Kochanski, according to a news release from the park.
They plan to perform family-friendly music at the park’s amphitheater on Sunday, Sept. 3, at 6 p.m. The event itself is free, but the usual $7 park entry fee is required.
Kochanski and Hoagland have made their musical mark as members of The Aloha Club ukulele band and have performed at the Cortez Farmers Market and other venues.
While the duo is known for their ukulele playing, they vary their repertoire with guitar and other instruments. Their appearance is the finale in the park’s summer Music in the Park series.
The entry fee also includes activities including trout fishing, boating, wildlife viewing and hiking.

On Saturday, Aug. 12, at 7 p.m. is recent area transplant Donna Joerg, a folk musician who will reprise her eclectic mix of music.
On Saturday, Aug. 19, at 7 p.m., local musician Tim Krebs will perform.
