The last concert of the 2019 Ross Farm Music Series kicks off a busy fall season at the Ross Farm. Even as Boudinot’s Giving Garden is still going strong, music, art and history make their comeback after a brief summer respite. First up, The Whiskey Treaty Roadshow takes the stage on the Tack House Patio on Saturday, September 21 at 6:30 p.m. The band brings together a group of Massachusetts singer-songwriters in the vein of Americana, Rock and Roots-folk music built on a brotherhood, or the idea that what is good on its own is better together. Instead of a traditional lineup, Whiskey Treaty is made up of frontmen, each singing and playing his own songs and each with a distinct vibe and sound.
Gates open at 5:30 p.m. to give guests ample time to walk the grounds and order dinner from Minuteman Smokehouse & Grill, who will be on site with their delicious barbecue. Lawn chairs or blankets are recommended and a suggested donation of $20 for adults and $5 for students may be given at the door, or via PayPal at www.RossFarm.org/event/twtr/. Guests may also pre-register at the website without donating. The music series is generously supported by the Band of Friends and local business sponsors.
Make sure to mark your calendar for the following events and we'll have more information coming your way soon! You may also keep up to date with all of our activities on Facebook at The Ross Farm - Basking Ridge and on Instagram @rossfarmbr. Nest weekend, Sept. 28 and 29, the Ross Farm will host four ARTsee members during the annual Studio Tour, which includes many mores stops in and around town. Hours are noon to 5 p.m. both days.
