Harry Hope's was a ski lodge converted into a popular music venue in Cary from 1974 to 1981.

Hear two tunes recorded by the old country rock band Baraboo Band, performing at Harry Hope's back in the 1970s, at www.kentrose.com.

"I was there with the Baraboo Band several times in the mid-1970s," said country singer Kent Rose, billed as "The Voice That Remembers." "Little did I know I'd live in Cary decades later."

According to Rose, the song "Change Your Mind and Go" is a classic country shuffle for dancing, and "Katiebird" is one of his early ballads.

See Kent perform in the Woodstock Square gazebo and hear him around the square during Woodstock Farmers Market, which begins Tuesday, May 6, from 9 a.m. to noon.
