Van Hook, Cedar return to RootStock

By August 10, 2011

If you missed the recent performance by Clarence Van Hook and J. Cedar, you’ll want to head to downtown Winters on Friday night for a return gig from 6 to 8 p.m. at RootStock, 22 Main St.

Van Hook is a local treasure. More than 40 years ago, he was performing concerts, festivals, coffee houses, nightclubs with many artists such as K.C. Douglas and Lightning Hopkins. Today, he works on his ranch in Guinda and plays with a group of musicians for appreciative audiences locally and in the Bay Area.

While best known as a bluesman, Van Hook’s repertoire today embraces country, rural blues and gospel.

Cedar is a veteran songwriter and guitarist with a lifetime of experience with early pop success, bluegrass, bar room rock n’ roll, country, big bands, big stages and back yards.

“Enjoy this authentic American music as you taste our local wines and sample our new cheese curds from Spring Hill Farms in Petaluma,” a RootStock spokesman says.

Olive oil by six local producers also will be featured in a tasting.
