Emerald Concerts presents Rod MacDonald

March 24 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Rod MacDonald, named “Best Local Acoustic Artist” and one of “Ten Greatest South Florida Folksingers Of All Time” (New Times) and one of “Ten Magnificent Musicians Of Palm Beach County” by The Palm Breach Post, beings his newest album “Rants And Romance,” which hit #5 on the national Folk/Acoustic charts in summer 2023, along with his renowned songs “American Jerusalem,” “Every Living Thing” and “White Buffalo” to Emerald Concerts, south Florida’s premiere folk concert venue. And if you’ve ever heard the ubiquitous “A Sailor’s Prayer (I Will Not Lie Me Down)” at the Rennaissance Festival, this is the composer who wrote it. An excellent singer and guitarist, MacDonald is also known for his socially-progressive and thought-provoking lyrics; Lee Zimmmerman, reviewing Rants And Romance in Goldmine (August 2023) wrote “You’ll find yourself singing along to MacDonald’s refrains, but when I closed eyes for “Heal the World,”  I imagined a room harmonizing on the chorus. Rod MacDonald’s lyrics-forward approach is a balm for troubled times.”
