March 8 – April 29
Ignacio Alperin: Visual Jazz
Jazz genre inspires and formulates each of the canvases created by Buenos Aires artist Ignacio Alperin Bruvera. His approach to artmaking is based on his synesthesia, a unique ability to “see sounds”. Just as there is beauty and complexity to jazz, the same qualities spill out from this artist onto canvas. His brilliantly-colored abstracts reflect resonating movement, and compacted intensity with natural soft counter balance.
Join us April 29 for an International Jazz celebration, 7-10 pm. The ticketed event will feature live music brought to you by Bruno Nasta, salsa and bachata dancing, international food, Argentinian wine, and of course, beautiful Argentinian art provided by Ignacio Alperin.

The unique relationship of a father and son cannot be argued nor explained, but when the relationship includes musical passion, virtuosity, and showmanship – magic happens! No one music genre totally encompasses the Thompson’s repertoire. Is it acoustic rock, pop, country, Celtic, jazz, funk? The simple answer is yes to all of the above. To experience a Thompson performance is to remember the experience.

Tim and Myles Thompson have been inspiring audiences throughout the country. With recent performances that include the Montreal Jazz Festival, Walnut Valley Festival, Sisters Folk Festival, Pagosa Folk ‘N Bluegrass Festival, and the Chet Atkins Festival, they have polished their craft to a fine luster.

The Barns at Rose Hill, 95 Chalmers Court
Berryville, VA 22611 United States

Don’t miss Pierre Bensusan, a French-Algerian guitarist, singer, and composer, on his 40th Anniversary World Tour! Pierre is recognized as one of the premier musicians of our time.

“The way the guitar would want to sound if it played itself.”

Described by the L.A. Times as “one of the most unique and brilliant acoustic guitar veterans in the world music scene today”, Pierre’s name became synonymous with contemporary acoustic guitar genius, long before the terms New Age, New Acoustic Music or World Music were invented. He has the ability to make a single guitar sound like an entire band as he brings the audience on a mesmerizing musical journey. And yet, Bensusan is more than what any musician or music lover expects from a guitarist. He is a composer as well as a bilingual and a brave improvisational vocalist, melding whistles and resonant low notes with something like his own scat technique.

All Tickets are General Admission
$20 in advance until 3:00 PM on the day of event
$25 at the door
Children: 12 years and below are free when accompanied by an adult

Tickets may be purchased in advance either online or by calling the Barns of Rose Hill Box Office at 540-955-2004 (Noon to 3:00 – Tuesday through Saturday). If you call when our Box Office is closed, please leave a message and we’ll return your call within 24 business hours.
