Guitarist and songwriter Hank Levine
once lived a life on the road. Born in Brooklyn, he formed his first band in the 1960s and toured the states on the coffee-house circuit, the same folk-music tour ramblings that featured songwriters like Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel and Joni Mitchell. After years of touring, Levine moved to the North Bay and continued to perform, opening for performers such as Bonnie Raitt and the Neville Brothers before leaving the stage to raise a family. Now, with the kids grown, Levine is back behind the microphone, and playing an album-release show on Sunday, May 15, at the Redwood Cafe, 8240 Old Redwood Hwy., Cotati. 4:30pm. $25 (includes CD). 707.795.7868.
