The Rose Garden Coffehouse is one of New England's oldest continuously operating folk and acoustic music venues Performing Songwriter Competition.
"We received dozens of entries this year, from as far away as Idaho and from Nashville, but the three finalists performing on May 21 are all from right here in New England. Seamus Galligan, from Fairhaven, Mass.; Joanne Lurgio, from Warwick, R.I.; and Ian Meadows, from Chester, Conn."
The final competition will take place, Saturday, May 21st, just before the evening concert with Don White & Christine Lavin. Seamus, Ian & I will each perform the 2 songs we submitted. VERY EXCITING!! If you can't make the show, I will be sure to keep you posted!! Wish me LUCK!!
