The Valhalla Art, Music and Theatre Festival will host a double-header of music in the historic Valhalla Boathouse Theatre this week.

Susie Glaze and the Hilonesome Band and Houston Jones perform Wednesday as part of the summer-long festival.

“Susie Glaze & The Hilonesome Band has been likened to the classic British bands Pentangle and Fairport Convention blending classic folk music with rough-edged stories of tragedy and fate, all with orchestral arrangements sounding like chamber music gone folk,” according to a press release for the show. “This is a lush newgrass Americana folk fusion quintet presenting gorgeous eclectic blends of mountain folk and exciting new grassy and Celtic-inspired originals, all with the remarkable voice of Susie Glaze.

“Houston Jones invites you into a world of musical virtuosity and storytelling ranging from the myths of ancient Greece to the red dirt back roads of Waskom Texas. The acoustic heart of the band beats with the passion of five lifetimes lived in a musical landscape of revival tents to Irish pubs, New Orleans to the Great Plains to Motown, a church in Cape Cod to a punk club in Berkeley. Houston Jones is a high octane Americana quintet. Formed in 2001, the band performs a strong repertoire that ranges from bluegrass and folk to blues and gospel.”

Valhalla is located just west of Camp Richardson off of California State Route 89 at Lake Tahoe’s South Shore.
