UPPER LAKE, Calif. — Joe Craven, the famed folk musician, musicologist, teacher and storyteller, will be performing on Sunday, Feb. 18, at the Tallman Hotel in Upper Lake along with his musical partner and daughter Hattie.

Beginning at 3 p.m., this informal “Concert with Conversation” will take place in the Meeting House next to the Hotel.

“Joe Craven is quite a legend on the folk and bluegrass scene,” said Tallman owner Bernie Butcher, “and adding the personality and great voice of his daughter Hattie should be something special.”

Joe Craven is past recipient of the Folk Alliance Far-West Performer of the Year. He’s made music with many luminaries from Jerry Garcia to David Lindley and harmonica wizard Howard Levy, to seven years with banjo fusionist Alison Brown and 17 years with the mandolinist David Grisman.

Hattie Craven, in addition to being a seasoned actor in community theater, has built a reputation as one of the finest young performers on the stages of the Strawberry Music Festival, California Worldfest, Kate Wolf Memorial Festival, Live Oak Music Festival and the Millpond Music Festival — all to standing ovations.

Together, this father/daughter team has created a celebration of music making by finding common ground between different generations with differing musical tastes and sensibilities.

At $30 plus tax, the price of admission includes coffee and cookies served at the concert venue. Tickets can be obtained online at www.eventbrite.com or by calling at the Tallman Hotel reception desk at 707-275-2244, Extension 0.

The 3 p.m. starting time is convenient for late lunch or early supper patrons at the Blue Wing Restaurant next door.
