Get Ready for Classic Country and Bluegrass coming to the California Center for the Arts, Escondido for Puttin’ Down Roots on July 20th
Local Americana Band Rosa’s Cantina Performs at this Month’s Free Music Series
Escondido, CA – July 2018 – Delve into the multicultural roots of American music with our Puttin’ Down Roots music series. This Americana music series will fill the Lyric Court with music every Friday in July! Rosa’s Cantina will be spotlighted this week in the Lyric Court with classic country and blues music on Friday, July 20th from 7 pm-9 pm.
Rosa’s Cantina is an Americana band hailing from San Diego, California. They draw their inspiration from roots music such as bluegrass, blues, classic country and gypsy swing.
The band started in 2015, when songwriters Carissa Schroeder (vocals) and Josh Renner (vocals/guitar) paired up for a co-write after being introduced by a mutual friend. In late 2016, they brought in Nick Shores (upright bass), shortly followed by Adam Ainsworth (violin).
Rosa’s Cantina released their self-titled, debut album on March 25th, 2018, produced by Ben Moore at Singing Serpent, San Diego, CA.
Although a newer band on the scene, it is clear that Rosa’s Cantina has a lot to say musically and they will inevitably transport the listener to a place that feels old – yet remains modern.
