Classic country never sounded so good when the Rambling Rose band performs at Northeast State on Tuesday, July 15 as part of the “Hot Nights, Cool Music” summer concert series continuing through July.
Rambling Rose plays traditional country music and bluegrass, gospel and an occasional rock and roll song. The band has been together for more than 35 years performing as fan favorites throughout the region. The legendary country sounds of Cash, Nelson, and Lynn among others get top-notch tribute from Rambling Rose.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The performance begins at 7 p.m. at the Regional Center for the Performing Arts at the College’s main campus in Blountville next to Tri-Cities Regional Airport. The performance is free and open to the public.
The Rambling Rose band features Earl Rose playing lead guitar and rhythm guitar, Ruthie Rose on vocals and bass, Norman May playing drums, Ted Cole on vocals and fiddle, Dennis Spangler on rhythm guitar and vocals, and Howard Bateman playing the Dobro guitar. Rambling Rose played Bristol’s wildly popular Rhythm and Roots Reunion music festival numerous times.
Earl Rose’s his love of music started as a child listening to the Grand Old Opry show. His father played banjo which led him to begin playing music at an early age. He later formed Rambling Rose playing with many of the same musical artists for more than 30 years. With an artistic legacy born in the blood, Earl Rose also teaches art and paints landscapes and portraits.
