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.

Opting out of the currently popular multi-day mega-event with an audience of a half-million people, fifteen stages, forty-two headliners and two thousand musicians, what they offered instead to the appreciative audience was a day of wonderful and intimate performances from some of the area’s top artists, an opportunity to connect and engage with various elements of the local music community, and an evening concert featuring the Lone Bellow opening for Rosanne Cash.
