Altadena’s one and only Ian Whitcomb — musician, music historian, bon vivant, wit and Grammy winner— returns to his favorite hometown performance space, the Coffee Gallery Backstage, for an evening with guitarist Fred Sokolow and possible “surprise guests.” He’ll be playing ukelele, accordian and piano, and singing songs both comic and sentimental, from the Tin Pan Alley era, vaudeville, the British invasion and maybe even the present. Whatever he performs is always both engaging and musically spot-on. The $18 show is quite likely to sell out, so reserve tickets soon.
Sunday, May 31, 7 p.m.
Coffee Gallery Backstage
2029 N. Lake Ave., Altadena
