Luncheon with Author Sybil Rosen

The Carrollton Center for the Arts will host a luncheon with local music legend Blaze Foley’s biographer and friend, Sybil Rosen, at 12:30 p.m., August 29. Her book, Living in the Woods in a Tree, is Rosen’s firsthand account of her life with Foley during the countercultural 1970s and Foley’s transformation from reticent hippie musician to enigmatic singer/songwriter. The two met in 1975 at Banning Mill and once lived in a tree house in Roopville. Foley wrote his most widely known song, If I Could Only Fly, for Rosen. His songs have been covered by Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson, John Prine and Merle Haggard. Tickets to the luncheon with Rosen are $30.
