For all of us here at the Rose Garden, the loss of our friend and leader Mac McLanahan in December made this a particularly challenging season. Thankfully, Mac had established a team of volunteers dedicated to the Rose Garden's mission for the past 26 years. As we enter our 27th season, we hope to continue to bring you the best folk music in Southeastern Massachusetts. We hope Mac would be proud of us.
Check out our schedule for next season at left. You'll see some faces returning, like Modern Man, The Kennedys and Vance Gilbert, veteran acts like Aztec Two-Step and the combo of Christine Lavin & Don White, and newcomers like Roosevelt Dime, among others. It's a pretty amazing lineup. We hope you'll agree and join us!
We are constantly trying to move the show forward and open to new ideas. You might see some twists next season. Our thinking caps are on! See you in September!
