Come out and hear great local music while supporting ALMA’s work in bringing quality live music to Alamosa! The annual ALMA and Friends concert is on Saturday, February 16 at 7:00 p.m. at Society Hall, 400 Ross Avenue, in Alamosa, CO.

We are pleased to announce that Maggie Rains & Crooked Keys is the performer for this year’s ALMA and Friends concert. Maggie Rains & Crooked Keys is a seven-piece, blues-rock cover band with a few originals that is based out of Southern Colorado, building quite a following there. Tracy J Reynolds, known professionally as Maggie Rains, is a native of Colorado and sings with a soulful deep and rich sound. She is an accomplished vocalist who brings to life a new blend of blues, jazz and rock to make the components of her new EP Anathallo shine for her audience.

Every year, musicians contribute their talents for an ALMA membership drive concert. ALMA memberships help to make the Sundays at Six concert series in Cole Park a free service to all and help to fund ALMA’s regular programming and other live music events throughout the Valley. ALMA is very proud to be celebrating 20 years of live music in the San Luis Valley. Our birthday gift to our 2019 members is free admission to all ticketed 2019 ALMA concerts. ALMA & Friends is the first of a number of concerts this year that will be free of charge to all ALMA members. Other concerts include, but are not limited to: Battle of the Bands on March 30, Euforquestra on May 4 and The Vogts Sisters on September 28. Sundays at Six concerts are, as always, free and open to the public.

Frank Scott CD Release Party – Nov 24

ALMA and Society Hall present Frank Scott, a CD Release Party, on Saturday, November 24. Frank and several local artists will be performing the songs from his new CD, “Searching for the One,” at Society Hall, 400 Ross Ave., Alamosa, CO 81101. Join us for this free concert and community potluck at 6:00 PM, with music starting at 7:00 PM.

Frank Scott was born and raised in New York City. Upon graduation from college, Frank hit the road for a few years, eventually landing in Alamosa in 1973. Frank still resides in Alamosa, where he raised his family. Frank helped form the Lucky La Rue Band in the early 90s with his friend and fellow educator, Fred Gonzales. The band had a large local following for over a dozen years and produced two well-received CDs. Heavily influenced by his Scottish background, Frank formed a Celtic group called Celtic Cross. This group morphed into the 40 Below Band, which can still play a night’s worth of Celtic music, as well as some Jazz, Rock, Country and originals.

Frank’s new CD, “Searching for the One,” offers a diverse set of original songs. Rock, Celtic, Latin, Bluegrass…all these influences can be found in this new release. There are a number of dynamic performances by many of our local musical heroes, too numerous to mention here. The artists will be joining Frank at the CD Release Party.
