House Concert: Larry & Caroline
September 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$15 – $20
You are invited to a House Concert with Larry Unger and Caroline McCaskey at Cathy Clary’s home in Petaluma on Friday Sept 23, 2022, 7 p.m. Suggested donation (pay at the door): $15-$25. Enjoy the artistry of these talented musicians up close and experience some tunes outside the usual dancing genres. Weather permitting, we may sit on the deck surrounded by the lovely garden; however, September evenings may be cool, so we’ll likely be indoors — attendance is limited. Bring a simple-to-serve dessert snack to share at the break. Larry and Caroline will have recordings and other items for sale.
