Fans of local acoustic music legend Danny Holmes (formerly of the Holmes and Mancini duo) will be excited to learn he is returning to Central NY on Saturday, May 18 at 8pm!   Now living in Florida, the multi-talented singer/songwriter will perform in the duo, Rose n’ Thorne with his wife, Karen Holmes, an outstanding female vocalist. Audience members can expect a treat when the talented duo performs favorite covers along with Danny’s originals. 


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!

Tickets are $20 in advance through Humanitix and locally at Adirondack Cheese Company on Rt. 12 in Barneveld. Tickets the night of the concert, if available will be $20 for Members and $25 for non-members at the Unity Hall box office starting at 7:15pm.

Get a taste of the musical excellence you'll be treated to in this great new video from Danny and Karen.
