April is Poetry Month Rockland

Poetry Month Rockland (PMR) , established in 2010 as collaboration between Carol Bachofner (current Poet Laureate of Rockland) and the Rockland Public Library as a way to celebrate poetry in the greater Rockland area, is now in its fifth year. PMR honors the art of poetry (and the poetry of art).  For a listing of programs & events, go here.

Musical Duo:  Simons & Goodwin

Simons and Goodwin got their beginning back in the 1960's when they met  while performing in the Boston and Cambridge coffeehouses. Bob Simons was a  single act while Renee Boghosian (later Goodwin) was performing with the now  well-known folk artist Bill Staines. Boston's folk music scene in the 60's was,  along with New York's Greenwich Village, teeming with folk performers who became major names in the industry. It was the place to be, and it was the place to acquire the musical and performance skills needed to become successful as folk performers. Bob and Renee did just that!
