Weekend concerts feature both local and international musicians: singer-songwriters, jazz, blues, world, and experimental; and every other Tuesday we host Singer-Songwriter Tuesdays, a showcase of local musicians. Enjoy delicious, whole vegetarian cooking and hear great music in an intimate, smoke free restaurant environment.

Recognized by Chronogram Magazine as Best Vegetarian Restaurant and Best Performance Space, we also received a four star rating for food and value in the Poughkeepsie Journal.

After a concert by The Hunger Mountain Boys, enthusiastic audience member Ammuse wrote "... The Rosendale Cafe holds a special place in my heart, being among one of my favorite intimate music venues in not only my surrounding area, but in NY State itself."  Click here to see the full review, including some great photos.

Today's Event at the Cafe:
Old Buck
Friday, April 18 at 8:00pm  Cost: $15.00   iCal +Google

Old BuckThis is old time kickin' stringband fiddle music with singin'. It's jes' Emily Schaad on Fiddle, Riley Baugus on Clawhammer Banjo, Debra Clifford on Guitar, Sabra Guzmán on String Bass, that's all.

This young old-time string band... shows that folk music is more rhythmically exciting, soulful, and emotionally relevant when it is immersed in the tradition." --Acoustic Guitar, Best of 2013

"
If you like old time Appalachian music, boy are you in for a treat! Old Buck is a supergroup that plays the bootlegged sounds of the South, drenched in moonshine and long shadows, drawn from a fiddle bow." --The Bluegrass Situation

"
This is fiery and expressive old-time music with deep roots in the tradition. It will certainly appeal to lovers of old-time music, but its audience should reach considerably beyond to all those who love exquisitely performed music." --Bluegrass Unlimited

... and then...
Repair Cafe
Saturday, April 19 at 10:00am  Cost: Free   iCal +Google

Repair CafeRepair Cafe Rosendale will be a free community event for sharing and repairing things, held from 10:00am to 3:00pm throughout the town. The idea was born in Amsterdam in 2009, and has grown to a worldwide movement.

At the Repair Cafe you'll find tools and materials to help you make the repair you need: on furniture, small appliances & housewares, clothes, crockery, toys and more.

You'll also find "repair coaches"; such as electricians, seamstresses, mechanics and all-purpose fix-it pros; to get you started and to help-out along the way.

Repair Stations will be throughout Rosendale:

  • Mechanical and Electrical - at the Rosendale Cafe
  • Things Made of Wood - at Redwing Blackbird Theater
  • Clothing, Textiles, and Stuffed Animals - at Boom Baby Boutique
  • Electronic and Digital Devices - at the The Creative Co-op
  • Jewelry - at the The Drum Depot
  • Vet Clinic from 1:00pm-3:00pm - at Paws & Tails (not free)

    For more information call Susan at 845-658-3511.

    Mikhail Horowitz and Gilles Malkine present "Virtuoso Ineptitude"
    Saturday, April 19 at 8:00pm  Cost: $10.00   iCal +Google

    Mikhail Horowitz and Gilles Malkine present 'Virtuoso Ineptitude'Due to the clamor of the rabble and the decision of a hung jury, Mikhail Horowitz and Gilles Malkine will return to Rosendale Cafe for another round of lyrically anorexic, metaphysically unfit, and intellectually suspect songs and skits. They'll be joined by the same crew that lowered the Cafe's property values last December... Charlie Kniceley on bass and Evan Shultis on fiddle.

    Come a few days before the show to claim your table, because the Cafe does not take reservations. For more information, contact the duo's attorney, manager, and booking agent, all three of whom are currently honor students at Eastern Correctional Facility.
