The informal series of “Concerts with Conversation” at the Tallman Hotel in the winter and spring of each year has become a favorite of Lake County music lovers over the years. Five great Sunday afternoon concerts will headline the Hotel’s fourteenth concert season beginning on January 19.
Blues lovers won’t want to miss the February 9 with the Blue Wing’s favorite blues guitarist, singer and songwriter “Mighty Mike” Schermer paired with blues harp master and bandleader Andy Santana. Schermer was a fixture on the West Coast scene for 20 years when he moved to Austin TX to tour with the legendary band headed by Marsha Ball. Headliners in their own right, Schermer and Santana have enjoyed getting together in smaller acoustic venues to give audiences a feel for the true origins of the Blues.
The Sunday afternoon concerts run from 3:00 to 4:30 in Riffe’s Meeting House next to the Hotel. The venue seats only about 40 people, so people are encouraged to purchase tickets as far in advanced as possible. Tickets at $25 + tax are available online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/84630976529.. Coffee and cookies are served to guests and the Tallman is offering a 10% discount on hotel bookings that weekend for people purchasing concert tickets. More information is available on the Hotel web site or by calling (707) 275-2244 ext. 0.
