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.

Sundays at Six presents Mariachi San Luis — August 26

The Alamosa Live Music Association presents Mariachi San Luis at Sundays at Six, August 26. This final Sundays at Six of summer 2018 will take place at the Rio Grande Farm Park at 6:00 pm, in conjunction with the LOCAL! Harvest Festival in Alamosa, which starts at noon and is free and open to the public. Come celebrate our region’s Hispanic heritage with a favorite local Mariachi group, while enjoying local food and art and many other activities.

The group began as a result of a conference sponsored by Adobe de Oro – Concilio de Artes held in Alamosa in the fall of 1998. Mariachi San Luis is composed of younger students and adults. Their goal is to provide a safe, educational, alcohol and drug-free environment. This vibrant group of musicians has achieved remarkable growth and maturity, which can be attributed to the dedication of the students and a very aggressive performance schedule. The Mariachi has performed in communities all over the San Luis Valley, Pueblo, Colorado Springs, Denver and Santa Fe. Although Mariachi music originated in Jalisco, Mexico, groups in the United States have appropriated the style as a proud expression of their heritage, and, although they appeal to audiences of any ethnicity, Mariachi San Luis is a fine example of this movement.

Sundays at Six is generously sponsored by: 1st Southwest Bank, Alamosa Home, Alamosa Local Marketing District, Alamosa State Bank, Arby’s, City of Alamosa, Comfort Inn & Suites, Crestone Eagle, Hunan Chinese Restaurant, IHOP, Jay Meyer Insurance, Kavley’s Business & Tech Center, Kenneth King Foundation, KRZA, KW Farms, Movie Manor, Myers Brothers Truck & Tractor, Porter Realty, Rio Grande Savings & Loan, SLV Federal Bank, SLV Health, SLV Rural Electric Co-op, Steffens Quality Plumbing, Super 8, Treasure Alley, Valley Courier, Valley Motel, Valley Wide Health Systems, Wall, Smith, Bateman, Xcel Energy Foundation and 2018 ALMA members.

Sundays at Six is a free outdoor concert series in Cole Park, Alamosa. Concerts start at 6 p.m. Check out this year’s lineup. In case of bad weather, go to ALMA’s website and Facebook page to find out about cancellations or change of venue.
