ALMA and ASU Music Department Present Colcannon
Join us on Wednesday, March 8, at 7:00 p.m., at Leon Memorial Hall at Adams State University for a rousing evening of Irish music.
Authentic, Joyous Irish Music…. traditional with a touch of chamber music and music hall, Colcannon plays Irish music with panache, warmth and wit. Timeless songs and great musicianship transport the audience to another time and place. Colcannon is equally at home on the stage at a folk music festival or performing with a symphony orchestra.
Colcannon’s appeal crosses lines of age, gender and ethnic background. For while the musical focus is on the beautiful wealth of traditional Irish music — all acoustic instrumentation, traditional as well as original tunes and songs, with some of the songs in Mick’s native Irish language — Colcannon’s true message is the story of the resilient and joyous human spirit.
General admission is $20; ALMA members pay $18; and students with ID pay $10. No advance tickets are for sale, so come early to grab a seat!
This concert is sponsored by Xcel Energy Foundation and Comfort Inn & Suites of Alamosa.

We are pleased to announce that The Haunted Windchimes, hailing from Pueblo, CO, are the performers for this year’s ALMA and Friends concert.
The Haunted Windchimes sound draws from traditional folk and American roots music. The songs have a vintage quality, as if they might have been written yesterday or 75 years ago. Grounded in honeyed harmonies and spirited pickin’, it lies in a nowhere land between distinct styles: It’s not quite bluegrass or blues or country. Still, there are elements of all those in songs that paint pictures of empty train stations and nights of passing a jug of moonshine around. It’s the vocal harmonies that really set them apart, a three-headed juggernaut of Desirae Garcia (ukulele), Chela Lujan (banjo) and Inaiah Lujan (guitar). “When their voices blend, it is nothing short of beautiful,” writes Bill Reed of The Colorado Springs Gazette. The sound is often moody and melancholy, but it is always deeply affecting. That sound is embroidered by the instrumental mastery of Mike Clark (harmonica, guitar and mandolin).
Admission is free for ALMA 2017 members and $20 for general admission. No advance tickets are for sale, so come early to grab a seat!

The Alamosa Live Music Association and La Puente invite the community to sing along to traditional holiday carols and other holiday songs, at 6:00 p.m. December 18, at Milagros Coffee House, Alamosa. Local musician Don Richmond will lead the Sing-Along.
A community tradition, the Sing-Along is a wonderful opportunity for locals to come out, bring their families and enjoy an interactive holiday event. Attendees can request their favorite holiday tunes and song books will be provided to facilitate singing.
A willingness to participate and have a good time is the only admission requirement for the event, but attendees are encouraged to support La Puente by purchasing holiday treats and drinks at Milagros. In addition, it is suggested that attendees offer a donation of a non-perishable food for the Food Bank.
