Puttin’ Down Roots: Rosa’s Cantina

Delve into the multicultural roots of American music with our Puttin’ Down Roots music series. This Americana music series will fill the Lyric Court with music every Friday in July!

Rosa’s Cantina will be spotlighted this week in the Lyric Court with classic country and blues music on Friday, July 20 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Rosa’s Cantina is an Americana band hailing from San Diego, CA. They draw their inspiration from roots music such as bluegrass, blues, classic country and gypsy swing.

The band started in 2015, when songwriters Carissa Schroeder (vocals) and Josh Renner (vocals/guitar) paired up for a co-write after being introduced by a mutual friend. In late 2016, they brought in Nick Shores (upright bass), shortly followed by Adam Ainsworth (violin).

Rosa’s Cantina released their self-titled, debut album on March 25, produced by Ben Moore at Singing Serpent, San Diego, CA.

Although a newer band on the scene, it is clear that Rosa’s Cantina has a lot to say musically and they will inevitably transport the listener to a place that feels old – yet remains modern.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
