Local impresario Rosey Geary will host a house concert by his latest musical ensemble plus an engaging presentation by local writer K. Stephens Thursday, March 8 at 7 p.m. at Rosecroft Farm, 294 Searsmont Road/Route 173. Seating is limited — in fact, this is a bring-your-own-folding-chair affair.

Rose and the Teardrops is a Midcoast-based group that enjoys playing and singing with a Down East/down-home flavor, whether on stage, sitting around the living room, on the front porch or even in a parking lot. They got together in early last fall and have played together just about every week since. Their style of music ranges from bluegrass to folk, older country, some sixties rock and bluegrass gospel.

The new group features Nancy Jones of Warren on vocals, guitar and pennywhistle; Pendra Legasse of Camden on vocals and keyboard; and Gerry on vocals, banjo and autoharp.

Special guest Stephens will stage an engaging presentation from her 2009 novel “The Ghost Trap,” which follows the haunting story of Jamie Eugley, a young lobsterman struggling with the grinding responsibilities of a head-injured fiancée and mounting trap wars in a fictional setting based around the Midcoast. “The Ghost Trap” is a modern tale with an old-fashioned hero who puts family and heritage before self. Stephens will splice fictional excerpts with documentary-style video clips for a fast, exciting presentation for those interested in the hard-working lifestyle that goes with Maine lobster fishing.

Attendance is by reserved ticket only, $10 per person. To reserve tickets, contact Gerry at 975-5432 or roskari@gmail.com.
