This is the second of our 2019 series of intimate “Concerts with Conversation” in Riffe’s Meeting House next to the Hotel. In a “house concert” setting for a maximum of 40 people, world class musicians let their hair down and play for the fun of it before an appreciative Sunday afternoon audience. Coffee and cookies are served. Admission is $25 + tax and tickets may be purchased at the Hotel front desk or by calling (707) 275-2244 ext. 0.
Today’s concert features New Orleans style blues pianist and blues historian MACY BLACKMAN and his trio, including NANCY WRIGHT on sax and BING NATHAN on bass.
The pianist Macy Blackman, a long-time music educator and piano expert, has been an active performer since the 1960s, specializing in jazz and rhythm and blues, in particular the R&B music of New Orleans. He recently released his third album with his band The Mighty Fines.
Two of Macy’s “Mighty Fines” will join the show at the Tallman: Bing Nathan on bass and the virtuoso sax player and vocalist Nancy Wright.
