American songwriter Tom Russell returns with a monumental new CD, The Rose Of Roscrae. It's chock full of songs and stories of loves lost, dreams dashed, buffalo hunts, Indian wars, crooked judges, and heroes and villains of the Old West. The double CD, which runs over 2h 40m, has a companion book - a libretto with lyrics, stories and bios of the guest performers. Even by Tom Russell's standards, this is a remarkable opus! We can't wait to hear some of these new songs and stories, performed Live, accompanied by the brilliant Portland guitarist Thad Beckman.

Early Bird Weekend Tickets are usually $145 (plus a $4 service fee) through the VFMF website. We are offering them for $135 (including service fee), on sale until the deadline of midnight Sunday June 14th 2015.
This year we are only selling them online through our website. Only current Rogue Folk members can purchase tickets so make sure your membership is up to date before trying to purchase your tickets online. The website will only allow you to buy them if your membership is current. You can buy as many tickets as you like for your friends and family.
Disregard any coments about discounts for seniors, students, etc... these do not apply. The price is $135 for everyone. If you are a senior (over 65), student or child, it is cheaper to purchase directly from the VFMF website.
