After 31 years of providing live music to the area, Mansfield’s own Rose Garden Coffeehouse will open its 2020 fall season online. We hope we’ll be able to resume live in-person shows in January 2021, conditions-willing.

Our 2020-2021 season will officially begin online on Saturday, Sept. 19, featuring Atwater-Donnelly and the finals of our Performing Songwriter Competition. Details of the online performance will be available soon, as will those of our other fall performances. We expect them to be available for streaming on our Facebook page and on YouTube.

Meanwhile, the Rose Garden will be holding a special, virtual, in-the-round show on Friday, June 12 at 8 p.m., featuring wonderful singer-songwriters Kim Moberg, Grace Morrison and Jim Trick. The event is free but tip jars will be available online to contribute to the musicians.

In these unprecedented times, music is needed more than ever. We have an exceptional list of musicians lined up that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home. The Rose Garden is providing the concerts free of charge but a donation to the performers would be most welcome.

The May 16, 2020 Peter Mulvey show has been rescheduled to April 17, 2021. Tickets sold for the Mulvey show will be honored for the rescheduled date.
