Members of The Rose Ensemble talk about some of their recent experiences in Brainerd, Minnesota, which included introducing Central Lakes College world music students to a wide variety of early American musical repertoire.

Meanwhile, founder and artistic director Jordan Sramek talks about the synergy that occurs on stage towards the end of a tour run.

After a brief jaunt to California and Oregon this weekend, The Rose Ensemble will return for the next leg of the Songs of Temperance and Temptation tour, starting in Austin on November 17th.


The Rose Ensemble joins together on stage for a momentous finale with "Modřanská polka" ("Beer Barrel Polka," 1927).


Instrumentalist David Burk speaks to Central Lakes College students about early Cajun music and music from Cape Breton Island.
