Richie Stearns & Rosie Newton
Apr 30 @ 7:30 pm

Before joining forces, Riche & Rosie were well-established within the ‘Old Timey Music” world, a recognized genre of American folk music that pre-dates bluegrass and stretches back to the early years of the US.  The duo’s musical journey wandered through several different bands while they refined their skills and gathered a wide range of musical influences.  Richie and Rosie are proof of two things: the power and magic of two people making music, and that the universal messages that lie within their songs remain timeless and an honest connection with their audience. Suggested donation: $10.
