Howdy all, we are extremely pleased to announce that we are hosting another house concert with master musician (and all around nice guy) Bruce Molsky. This concert will be in our home near Healdsburg California. Bruce is a true master of the guitar, banjo, and fiddle and a great traditional singer. He has been a long-time favorite at both of Alasdair Fraser’s Valley of the Moon and Sierra fiddle camps. He gave an outstanding concert in our home about 2 years ago to a full house. (our house holds about 44 people)
To hold a seat, please send a check to Kathy Clendenen, at PO box 69, Healdsburg, CA 95448. Inquiries can be sent to Kathy@clendenenvineyards.com.
