Concert In The Garden With Laura Cotese and The Acoustic Project
Thursday, August 16th • Concert in the Garden with Laura CORTESE AND the Acoustic Project
Welding the propulsive grace of ancient fiddle styles to disarmingly open-hearted original pop songs, Laura Cortese has emerged among the most intriguing and versatile musicians in the bountiful New England post-folk scene. At home in any number of traditional styles, her highly-visible work as a supporting musician (on fiddle, vocals, and bass) includes appearances with Uncle Earl, Tao Seeger, Band of Horses, and – as part of Pete Seeger’s 90th birthday celebration at Madison Square Garden – Patterson Hood and Michael Franti. Laura will appear with fellow musicians Natalie Haas, Brittany Haas and Hanneke Cassel who make up the Acoustic Project. The band has been enjoying glowing reviews playing festivals and concerts in 2011. Picnics are encouraged. The gates open at 6:30 pm and the concert begins at 7:00 pm. The concert will be held rain or shine. Tickets available at www.rjdmuseum.org or at 508-997-1401, $16 for members, $20 for non-members.

Located in historic New Bedford, Massachusetts on a full city block of gardens, this national landmark was built for whaling merchant William Rotch, Jr. in 1834. Designed by Richard Upjohn, the House is one of the finest surviving examples of residential Greek Revival architecture.
The Rotch-Jones-Duff House & Garden Museum is so named for the three prominent families who resided at 396 County Street. The house and gardens chronicle 150 years (1834-1981) of economic and social life in the city, as reflected in the lives and stories of those who lived and worked at the property.
Furnished period rooms display the decorative arts, furniture and belongings of the families and timeframe. The Museum offers permanent and changing exhibits, lecture series, community and educational programs.
A partner in the New Bedford Whaling National Historic Park, the Museum joins the city's cultural and educational institutions in embracing, celebrating and learning from the rich legacy of this maritime community.
