Southwest Americana Blues Celebration
April 24, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Gato Malo (of Felix Y Los Gatos) spent his childhood watching his family play traditional (rancheras) New Mexico music in Albuquerque’s, South Valley. He channels the sounds of his ancestors through his music and songwriting, and has shared the stage with big names like Tab Benoit, Wayne “The Train” Hancock, FishBone, & the Zydeco Krewe.
Christian Talamanetes embodies the Southwest. His El Paso roots mix with the Southwestern Blues music you often hear him making with his band Next 2 the Tracks while they tour across the U.S..
Marion Carillo blends storytelling, humor, and honest reflection in his New Mexico inspired songs. He is inspired by John Prine, Jackson Browne, Todd Snider, and Blaze Foley.
David Bridwell is often noted for his humorous straightforward songwriting. He just released a new song called Funky Patriotism. It’s about his favorite kind of patriotism–the funky kind.
