Three generations of Mallon musicians will grace the stage at Char’s Landing this Saturday, March 3. Doors open at 7 p.m., music starts at 8 p.m.

The Mallon family’s musical history started with Hank and his brothers, Tony and Bill, who formed a trio while working at MacBlo’s Central Lake sawmill.

Hank and wife Lorna’s kids grew up on a healthy diet of oldtime country, bluegrass and rockabilly. Mike has carried on the tradition with his own bands, including Lazy Mike and the Rockin’ Recliners.

And now Mike’s son Carson is carrying on the family line.

Hank, Mike and Carson will play Char’s together.

Tickets are $15 each ($12 for seniors, kids 12 and under admitted for free) and available at the door. Char’s Landing is located at 4815 Argyle St. across from city hall.
