For two decades, the rhythms and twang of the best bluegrass and folk music acts in the country passed through these walls. Now, with the building sold and up for lease, the music will flow through Rounder's new location in Burlington.
During the last stages of the move in mid-February, a few straggling employees unplugged the office computers and telephones, wrapping up stray electric cords and a local piece of music history.
As Rounder Records grew from its humble beginnings in 1970 as the brain-child of two Tuft s grads, the label branched out with imprints for children's music, reggae, jazz and pop, becoming in the process an independent music powerhouse. Its roster of artists now includes Bruce Cockburn, They Might Be Giants, Raffi and Alison Kraus, to name a very few.
