8PM, SATURDAY, JULY 23, 2022


The outstanding set Danny Holmes  did with his newly formed duo for Unity Hall's Virtual Concert Series convinced us we had to make a point of bringing them to the Hall once live concerts resumed.  Come enjoy them live live at Unity Hall on Saturday, July 23rd at 8pm. 

The former half of the popular Central New York duo Holmes and Mancini now performs in Rose N' Thorne with
 wife, Karen Holmes, an outstanding female vocalist. Together, they will treat you to a set of original songs as well as wonderfully crafted covers of timeless tunes from the American songbook.

Rose N’ Thorne features spot-on harmonies accompanied by intricate, expressive and energetic acoustic guitar, piano, percussion and harmonica. Karen has opened for artists like Shania Twain and Benny Mardones. The duo’s covers of Linda Ronstadt, Joni Mitchell and both Nora and Rickie Lee Jones feature Karen’s amazing voice, while Danny brings his great talent to songs by The Beatles, Neil Young, James Taylor and Eric Clapton. Their eclectic music selections range from
Talking Heads, Dave Mason and Bonnie Raitt, to Elvis, Amy Winehouse, and the Little River Band.

Since leaving Central NY, Danny toured across the country performing at colleges and clubs and opened shows for artists including Melissa Manchester, Livingston Taylor, Al Jarreau and Eric Burden. After a stint in Nashville, Danny and Karen moved to Florida where they took a “short” 15-year hiatus from the music biz. In 2016, they began performing again and since then have been in high demand from Florida’s The Villages to Ft. Myers, from Bradenton to Winter Haven. This is an
act you won’t want to miss!
