Concerts with Conversation: Good Measure

01.19.2020 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


UPPER LAKE, Calif. – The annual winter concert series at the Tallman Hotel in Upper Lake opens its 2020 season on Sunday, Jan. 19, at 3 p.m. in Riffe’s Meeting House next to the Hotel with a lively and harmonious group of local musicians called “Good Measure.”

Good Measure makes its own style of acoustic music, which is influenced by folk, pop, rock & roll, jazz, Cajun, country and bluegrass. They blend three- and four-part harmonies accompanied by a wide variety of instruments.

Sissa Harris comes from a classical background whereas husband Doug is a product of the 60’s folk tradition. Doug and Sissa travel regularly in Scotland, visiting small town pubs where they appreciate and perform Scottish folk music. They enhance Good Measure with their vocals and fine artistry on the guitar, mandala, harmonica, melodica and ukulele.

Ingrid Larsen delights audiences with her sweet and captivating voice. Bill Bordisso’s instruments are sometimes the (undeserved, he says) brunt of jokes, but he spins mighty tunes enlivening the group with his accordion, banjo, saxophone and dobro. Richard Vassilaros grounds the band with his fine bass guitar.

Coffee and cookies are served as part of the $25 + tax price of admission. Tickets are available at and further information can be obtained at the Tallman Hotel, 707-275-2244, Extension 0). The hotel is also offering a 10-percent discount on hotel bookings that weekend for people purchasing tickets to the concert.
