Rosebud Open-Air Concerts

Friday, 4 August 2023 - Experience incredible live music every Saturday in August! Bring your blanket or lawn chair, your sunscreen and hat, and enjoy summer concerts in the heart of the Rosebud Valley. 2023's lineup includes: August 5 & 26: Lewis & Royal Who better to kick off alumni festivities than Rosebud's very own Lewis & Royal? Come to Rosebud for a celebration of 50 years of art in the valley and hear fan-favourites from albums Ampersand, Lock Up Your Gopher and the runaway musical hit CHICKENS. August 12: John Wort Hannam In 2001, folk-roots musician John Wort Hannam quit his teaching job and spent 10 months depleting his savings while sat at his kitchen table, wearing a lucky hat, writing his first ten songs. Eighteen years later, with a few feathers in that lucky hat that include a JUNO nomination and a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Album of the Year, he’s got a new energy fueled by a new band, a new sound and a ton of new songs. August 19: Maria Dunn A true preserver of the spirit of folk music, 2022 Juno Award Winner Maria Dunn is often compared to Woody Guthrie for her keen social awareness and unvarnished melodic songs about ordinary people. Her latest album Joyful Banner Blazing (2021) celebrates resilience, grace, gratitude, solidarity, joy and the love that fires our actions to make the world a better place. - Event Details
