UPPER LAKE, Calif. — Rita Hosking, one of Northern California’s leading country-folk singer songwriters, will be featured on Sunday, Jan. 23, as part of the Tallman Hotel’s 2022 series of “Concerts with Conversation.”

Hosking’s guitar and vocals will be backed by Sean Feder on banjo and dobro guitar.

Beginning at 3 p.m., this informal concert will take place in the beautiful Meeting House next to the Tallman Hotel in Upper Lake.

Owner Bernie Butcher points out that all precautions have been taken to assure a safe and relaxing afternoon of music.

“We’ve reduced the seating capacity to 25 this year,” he said, “to assure social distancing. Ventilation and air purification systems have been upgraded and all musicians and patrons must show proof of vaccination.”

A descendant of Cornish miners, Hosking grew up with a deep regard for folk music and the power of the voice.

In song and story, she shares with the audience her upbringing in rural Shasta County and the old-time band of seasoned mountain characters that shaped her musically.

“We’ve played the Tallman concert series a couple of times in the past,” she said, “and the intimate setting is one of our favorites. Both Sean and I are really looking forward to performing there again with some of our new material.”

Hosking’s songs have been lauded for story and sense of place. Her third album, called “Come Sunrise,” won Best Country Album Vox Pop at the 2010 Independent Music awards.

At $30 plus tax, the price of admission includes coffee and cookies served at the concert venue.

Tickets can be obtained online at Eventbrite.com or by calling at the Tallman Hotel reception desk at 707-275-2244, Extension 0.
