Steinbach was treated to quite a show on Tuesday night at K.R. Barkman Concerts in the Park with a local artist making his debut. 

17-year-old Louden King brought fans with him to the park and there were a lot of cameras to document the occasion.

This young musician started drumming at age four, and then took up a second instrument. 

“I started playing guitar five years ago. That’s when I started writing my own music and stuff, listening to bands like Rush and Led Zepplin.”
