Explore R. House This Weekend

R. House won't open in it's new food hall concept till next year. But if you're curious about the space, two public events are taking place there this weekend.

Tonight, Friday, from 7pm to 11pm, the Remington Village Green (the community garden on the 2800 block of Fox Street), is hosting a fundraiser. The group hopes to raise funds to purchase one of the privately owned lots that makes up the garden (most of the lots are held in trust by the nonprofit Baltimore Green Space).

On Sunday at 1pm, the Yellow Barn Music Haul will come to R. House. This free public concert features accordionist Merima Ključo; percussionist Ian Rosenbaum; Rabbit Rabbit, the song-spinning duo of Carla Kihlstedt and Matthias Bossi; and percussionists from the Peabody Conservatory.

From their website:

Redefining what a concert hall can be, Yellow Barn Music Haul brings music to grammar schools and conservatories, urban neighborhoods and arts districts, city lots and open fields. It plays for people regardless of their experience with or knowledge of music, their attention captured in the unexpected moment. With Yellow Barn Music Haul we realize music’s fundamental purpose, and inherent ability, to communicate in ways that defy definition and move us without explanation.
