Concerts at the Cadillac will Kick Off Labor Day Weekend with Blues from Nelson Lunding

This Friday Labor Day weekend will be unofficially launched in the lobby of the Cadillac Hotel with a return visit by Nelson Lunding. Lunding is a pianist who sings his own music in the New Orleans tradition of blues. He will be making one of his visits from Guatemala to give a solo performance in the Concerts at the Cadillac series. Both his playing and singing styles fuse the blues tradition with the more recent idioms of rock and soul:

Like all Concerts at the Cadillac events, this show will begin at 12:30 p.m. and will take place this Friday, September 2. The Cadillac Hotel is located at 380 Eddy Street, on the northeast corner of Leavenworth Street. Like all visiting artists Lunding will be playing he Patricia Walkup Memorial Piano, a fully-restored 1884 Steinway Model D Concert Grand. The purpose of the Concerts at the Cadillac series is to provide high-quality music to the residents of the hotel and the Tenderloin District; but all are invited to visit the venue that calls itself “The House of Welcome Since 1907.”
