Our very special feature for this night will be Michael Troy www.folkmichaeltroy.com
Please note this is our 1st 5th Monday ROM event of our ROM-2014 Season. So if you were thinking this is NOT a 2nd or 4th Monday as we have done for the past 5 years, your are correct!!!

9-29-14 with Steve Rapson Featuring
New this year is also the additional to the continuation of our ROM Unplugged Ceilidh evenings song circles.

Another very special ROM event this year which will NOT be held at ROM will be held on Sunday Night May 18, 2014. It is the 2nd year in a row that our Dear friend Ellen Schmidt will be opening her doorway at her wonderful Emerson Umbrella Open Mike in Concord where Ellen will continue to help ROM with our Fundraising efforts to enable Roslindale Congregational Church to become "Handicapped Accessible". This is an effort we have been working toward at ROM for years now and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and am in the hopes that the Church will be accessible in the NOT too distant future. My thanks to ALL who have donated their time and energies to this cause and also to This Monday's upcoming ROM Feature on 3-31-14, Michael Troy did a great Feature at one of the 3 Fundraisers for the church in the past. Thanks again Michael!!!!
Speaking of our dear Friend Ellen Schmidt.
Did you know that Ellen has a Brand New Open Mike??? It is called "Ellen Schmidt's Acton Jazz Cafe Open Mike. Our Congrats to Ellen on yet another wonderful venue which I have had the honor of attending one her very first show!! It is a splendid Venue with a great Community, state of the art new stage with a grand Piano and also likely the best of the best, it has Ellen Schmidt!!! The food is really great so go to a great open mike and go hungry you will leave with a wonderful meal and some heartfelt music and spoken word to dwell on your way home.
