Rock City Café, 316 Main St., will present Tim Hill & Autumn Rhodes Friday, Nov. 4; and the Ale House String Band Saturday, Nov. 5, both playing from 7 to 9 p.m.

One of the top young uilleann pipers in the United States, Hill has spent the last decade studying and performing Irish traditional music in a variety of venues. The Philadelphia-born musician has performed with the top tier of Irish traditional musicians and was featured as a guest on Derry singer Paul Carroll’s 2011 album “The Road You Take.”

Hill lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and performs regularly with Rhodes, both as a duet and as a member of The Jammy Dodgers, San Francisco’s top trad band. Equally renowned for both her flute and concertina playing, Rhodes also is an accomplished singer. She has toured throughout the United States and Ireland; and has taken first place awards in flute, whistle, concertina, lilting, and sean-nos singing.

The Ale House String Band features Brian Dunn on mandolin, April Reed-Cox on cello and Oren Robinson on guitar. Reed-Cox has a master’s in music performance, Robinson is a classically trained vocalist and Dunn “is a wandering soul who picked up music along the way.” Together, they have an uncanny ability to improvise acoustic music on the spot.

Food is available until closing. For more information on these and other events happening at the coffeebar/cafe, call 594-4123 or find it on Facebook.
