Tickets: Free


Newly minted hall-of-famer Carolyn Dolan will bring her rock, blues, jazz, country and funk to Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe’s Vinyl music venue Friday, Oct. 23.

Earlier this month Dolan was inducted into the Sacramento Western Swing Society Hall of Fame.

“She has been entertaining audiences for over twenty-five years with her soulful blues and jazz voice accompanied by the blues harmonica which is always by her side ready to deliver,” according to her online biography.

Dolan will perform with Big Red, a blues and R&B group “that fully devotes itself to playing raw, classic blues mixed with funk and R&B rhythms,” according to the bio. The group is led by guitarist Mick Clarke “truly one of the great English Blues purists to come out of the early English Blues/Rock scene in the late 60’s; playing with Long John Baldry, John Entwistle and Chuck Berry to name a few.” Ron Savage (bass, keyboards) and Steve Self (drums) round out the long-standing act.

Friday’s show is free. Hard Rock is located at 50 U.S. Highway 50 in Stateline.
