Folk Singer Plays the Tallman Hotel

The music of folk singer, composer, and guitarist Rita Hosking reflects her early life growing up in rural Shasta County. The artist will share the songs about that upbringing—as well as tunes about forest fires, homelessness, and hope—when she and her banjo- and dobro-playing partner Sean Feder perform at the Tallman Hotel in Upper Lake. Part of the hotel’s Concerts with Conversation series, the intimate performance is not appropriate for young children (think date night, instead). The show will be held on January 23 at 3 p.m.; tickets are $30 and available via Eventbrite: Proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be required to enter the venue.
