An Imaginary Line From CSN to Sarah Jarosz, Aoife O’Donovan & Sara Watkins

I awoke this morning with a throbbing left foot. I wore the black boots last night and my toes unconsciously tapped throughout the seventy-five minute set and the well deserved encore that was delivered by three talented singers, songwriters, and instrumentalists. On a beautiful summer night in the Spanish Courtyard of the Rosen House, located on the lush grounds of the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts which is a mere sixty minutes north of Manhattan, I kept my eyes closed for much of time to shut out the visual and allow just the sounds of nature melded with the music to pour over the tip of my head and fill my body and soul. The only distraction to my thoughts and immersion were the whoops and cheers that punctuated the close of each song.

Rockin' the Recovery benefit for Wimberley flood victims at Old Glory Ranch

Old Glory Ranch, in conjunction with My Neighbors Keepers (MYNK), will be hosting a benefit concert, Rockin' the Recovery, on Saturday, June 20th where all proceeds will go to benefit Wimberley flood victims. It will be a full afternoon and evening of live music, great food with area musicians and food vendors donating their talents for everyone's enjoyment and to aid those affected by the Memorial Weekend flood. Headlining the event is Wimberley's own Sarah Jarosz.

I remember Sarah performing on the Old Glory Ranch stage when she was 10 years old. She is an amazing young woman and a very gifted musician. We couldn’t be more thrilled that she is coming back to Old Glory to perform for this benefit. We know Wimberley has been in her heart during this very difficult time and it will be wonderful to welcome her home to contribute in such a beautiful way to help the people of this community. Who knows, maybe she will be inspired to write a song about the strength and resilience of her hometown friends and neighbors.
— Suzanne McCord, owner of Old Glory Ranch

Other groups in the lineup include Shake Russell, Kim Miller, Jill Jones & 3 Hands High, Broken Glass, Heather Wiley, Michael Shane Borden, The Rust Tones, and T-Bone & the Blues Tones. Performances on multiple stages and food trucks will be on site with delicious offerings as well as beverages (no outside food or beverages please).

All proceeds will go directly to My Neighbors Keepers, a 501(c)3 non profit offering immediate, short-term financial assistance to residents of the Wimberley Valley affected by natural disasters, such as flooding or fire.

Tickets are available online at three different levels, $75 per person for VIP Reserved Main Stage [limited number available], $25 per person for Main Stage Open Seating [limited number available but guaranteed a seat], and $15 per person General Admission.
