Tempest is not a local band. However, between the Oakland-based, Celtic-flavored progressive-rock quintet and its predecessor, Golden Bough, founder Lief Sorbye played the Palms, when it was in Davis, some 41 times during the past two decades. That would seem to indicate some popularity in the region. Sorbye, a native of Norway (the true origin of extremely tall Celts), will wow the crowd on his custom-built, double-necked mandolin once again during Tempest’s debut at the new Palms location in Winters this Friday, November 22. “The Palms has a special place in my heart, so to speak, because of the history over the years,” Sorbye said recently. “And this will be our first time at the new location, so I hope some of the vibe from the old place is spilling over, you know?” The show starts at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $13. The Palms is located at 13 Main Street in Winters, which is just west of Interstate 505, north of Vacaville and west of Davis.
