The Barns of Rose Hill have weathered a lot of storms in their time, but this past week has been a maelstrom of a whole different sort for the agrarian structures.
The situation with the Wolf Trap Foundation has caused quite a stir and brought a lot of attention to the little arts center. What the future holds is still uncertain, but this weekend the entire community can help capitalize on the new found fame to support two great causes.
Saturday, January 28, 2012 the Blue Ridge Hospice & Barns of Rose Hill will present a special benefit performance by Where’s Aubrey. A local favorite, Where’s Aubrey has played together since 1985, writing and performing all original music since the turn of the millennium. Rhine Singleton’s original songs, cloaked and hooded by Gary McGraw’s improvisation on the fiddle and mandolin, range from old-timey folk music to modern jazz. This intimate concert promises to be an evening of organic, locally-grown music for everyone to enjoy.
Gary McGraw told fans via email,”If you have not yet been to the Barns of Rose Hill to hear a concert, you are in for a treat. The acoustics are superb and the space is gorgeous. We are fortunate to have this new venue as a cultural center for Clarke. Where’s Aubrey is psyched to be playing at the Barns!”
The concert is a special benefit performance for the Blue Ridge Hospice and the Barns of Rose Hill. All proceeds benefit the Blue Ridge Hospice, a not-for-profit healthcare organization and The Barns of Rose Hill, a center for community, arts, and education in downtown Berryville .
Tickets are $15 adults, and $5 for children under 12. Seating is limited so reserve your seat(s) by calling 955-2004.
Doors open at 7:00 PM. Enjoy a beer and wine cash bar and visit with friends before the show. The concert begins at 7:30 PM.
Then on Sunday, January 29, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. join the volunteers and supporters of The Barns of Rose Hill for their annual organization meeting. This celebration is a great way to recognize the countless supporters who have committed time, energy and resources to the new arts center. There are also several big announcements pending from the organization, so stop in and show your support for Clarke County’s own home-grown arts effort.
