Appalachian Music and Healthy Holiday Treats at CommonWealth Herbs


CommonWealth Center for Herbal Medicine, in Brookline, will present a fundraising event at 7 p.m. on December 6, featuring the band Rising Appalachia. The evening will offer opportunities to learn about herbalism while sampling tasty, healthy herbal concoctions and treats and enjoying lively music.

“Rising Appalachia is the unofficial band of the herbal community, and we’re lucky to have them while they’re touring the East Coast,” says CommonWealth director Katja Swift. “Their particular style is something like Appalachian folk-tribal-fusion-awesomeness.”

Visitors can learn about CommonWealth classes and clinical appointments, meet the herbalists on staff and register for the Advanced Herbal Studies program that begins in January. “The concert is a great time to come check out our school, see a schedule of events and talk to our talented teachers,” says Swift. “We’re excited for the chance to show the school and clinic to a new audience and kick up our heels with this great band.”

Cost: Sliding scale, from $12 to $20. Location: CommonWealth Center for Herbal Medicine, 25 St. Mary’s Ct., Brookline. For more information, call 617-750-5274 or visit
