Forde Nursery in Great Falls was the site of Friday night’s 3rd Perennial Rootsfest.
Note the word perennial in the name – this event is held at a nursery and annual would be a misnomer! Carrie Rodriquez headlined the show and Peter Karp and Sue Foley also performed.
Rodriquez, an Austin, TX native, is a singer/songwriter/musician who wows crowds with her vocals and instrumental skills. She studied violin in younger years and can turn out some amazing music.
The setting at Forde Nursery on the west side of Great Falls is stunning – an evening of just sitting in their gardens would please just about anyone. Add some wine, microbrews, catered food and perfect weather under Montana’s big sky and you have the formula for a darn good time.
Be sure to watch for next year’s 4th Perennial Rootsfest – and schedule your Montana getaway to include it.
