The Mountain Rose is a small-hall concert series featuring local and regional artists with more talent than exposure. We pride ourselves on presenting high-quality performances to an audience that really LISTENS. That is the beauty of a concert setting. Our performers are primarily acoustic artists, mostly in the folk, traditional, and singer-songwriter categories. The concerts are run in Kent, Ohio, with the normal season running October through May. We occasionally (twice a year) produce all-day festivals at the Happy Days Visitor Center in The Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
