Wednesday, August 14, 2024, 7:30 pm, Laurie Lewis & the Right Hands Concert in the Boathouse – Valhalla Arts, Music and Theatre Festival.

Multi-GRAMMY nominee Laurie Lewis is a forebear and contemporary of so many bluegrass,
old-time, and folk greats. Over more than fifty years in music, she has established herself as a
truly singular voice, instrumentalist, and frontwoman in genres that lionize tradition,
“authenticity,” and emulation. She’s won IBMA Awards, sung and recorded with Linda Ronstadt,
and set poems by Wendell Berry to music – at his request. She’s influenced and inspired folks like
guitarist phenom Molly Tuttle, who’s just one example of an entire generation of pickers and
singers who can call her a mentor. All in all, Lewis has carved out a unique, superlative niche in
American roots music occupied by almost no other musicians and creators.

Her brand new album, Trees, finds Lewis’s music-making rooted in the natural world – as on
many past recordings – with a measured and often melancholy view of life, loss, and grief that’s
resplendent and complicated. An avid walker, Lewis is both an urban explorer and a wilderness
wanderer – plus a self-taught naturalist and conservation activist. Her skillset in songwriting and
recording is usually looking outward, text-painting to evoke the landscapes she adores and to
relay their speaking to us. On Trees, Lewis looks inward instead, utilizing all of the literary and
naturalist skills at her disposal to observe and process seasonal, organic, inevitable life

The Tallac Historic Site is located 2 miles past the intersection of Highway 50 and Highway 89, just past Camp Richardson, on the lake side of Highway 89. Please turn right on the street with the sign “Valhalla.” If the gate is locked or the 73-space parking lot is full, feel free to park along Hwy 89 outside the entrance. There is a large dirt lot just past the Valhalla Tahoe sign. Overnight parking is not allowed inside the gate. Cars can be left overnight outside the gate in the dirt lot at the owner’s own risk. 

We encourage carpooling, bike riding, and good old-fashioned walking. Parking is allowed in designated 73 spaces only. There is also a large public parking lot for the Tallac Historic Site on Heritage Way, one street West of Valhalla Road, that is open in late May or early October.

  • There are ~225 yards between the parking lot and the Boathouse Theater. Please wear comfortable shoes and allow time for the walk. A site host can bring a golf cart around for accessibility issues if scheduled ahead of time.  

Food & Beverage:

  • Light snacks, popcorn, and beer and wine are available for sale at our concessions.
  • Outside food and beverages are not allowed in the Boathouse Theater.
  • Outside alcohol is not allowed in the reserved table section/beer garden at outdoor events. 

If you have questions or require assistance please call (530) 541-4975 or email at least 24 hours in advance.

Valhalla hosts a Summer Event Series each year that includes concerts in the Boathouse, improv shows, free lawn concerts, living history performances, two plays, children’s art camp, the annual Gatsby Tea and the WordWave one-act play competition. The Holiday Faire is a family tradition for many locals and visitors. Join us for a performance and experience living history against a stunning backdrop. The theatre’s interior with exposed beams from the original boathouse creates an unrivaled experience in performing arts venues.
