On Friday, Oct. 29, Rock City’s Velvet Lounge will present Hope Hoffman and Jim Tolles. The music will run from 5 to 7 p.m. at Rock City Books & Coffee, 328 Main St., Rockland.

The musical alliance of Hoffman and Tolles focuses on the traditions of vocal and fiddle music, incorporating their original, roots-based songs and instrumental compositions. Concerts feature songs from the legacies of the Carter Family, bluegrass, country duet and Appalachian folk heritage.

There is no cover charge; however, tipping the musicians is highly encouraged. For more information on this and other events happening at Rock City, call 594-4123 or check out the Rock City Coffee Facebook page.
