“I support local music for the same reason I support local artists, local businesses, local growers - this is our future and our children’s future. This future of ours can be fabulous; full of creativity and joy. It can renew our minds, our spirits and our bodies. Or we can just accept our number and fall into line with the corporate sheep. I’ll take the joy, thank you. With all the talented musicians we have right here, how can one not find something to enjoy any night of the week? Appreciate them, people, they are our future.” - Rosemarie Ryan - musician mom and Red Lion Pub proprietor
