Berkeley Singer/Songwriter Gary Lapow has been performing at La Pena since we first opened. Gary has had a long career in music ranging from the Red Star Singers, accompanying Malvina Reynolds to his own Kaleidoscope Concert on the Disney Channel. Tonight’s occasion is a celebration of both his new CD, “Walking Down Life’s Highway”, Songs of Love, Loss, and Longing, and Gary’s 70th birthday. There will be plenty of guest artists joining Gary on this new collection of timeless songs from a seasoned singer.
