Come out and hear great local music while supporting ALMA’s work in bringing quality live music to Alamosa! The annual ALMA and Friends benefit concert is on Saturday, February 27 @ 7 p.m. at Society Hall, at 400 Ross Avenue, in Alamosa, CO. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. for light refreshments and a cash bar.
Every year, local 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. In 2015, with membership contributions ALMA helped fund a number of great live music events including three major concerts, seven Sundays at Six performances and many other co-sponsored events. Concert highlights included the John Denver tribute by Chris Collins, award-winning country singer, Crystal Yates, and the bluegrass trio, Blue Canyon Boys, during Sundays at Six.
Performers for this year’s ALMA and Friends concert include the dynamic duo of Kate Mann and Mark Dudrow, singer-songwriter Ry Taylor, and the American roots band, The Mitguards.
Admission is free for ALMA 2016 members and $15 for general admission. No advance tickets are for sale, so come early to grab a seat!

ALMA and La Puente host Annual Holiday Sing-Along
For one evening every year, different voices in the community gather to sing the same tunes! The Alamosa Live Music Association and La Puente invite the community to sing along to traditional holiday carols and other holiday songs, at 6 p.m. December 20, at Milagros Coffee House, Alamosa. Local musician Don Richmond with accompanist Teri McCartney 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.
ALMA is proud to co-sponsor this concert, featuring Liz Longley and Max Gomez on Saturday, November 14, at 7:00 pm.
About Max: “While many young artists write songs with the mere intention of entertaining the masses, Max’s songs are filled with the raw emotion and capture the spirit of those who came before him.”
About Liz: “Longley’s singing never fails to thrill and enthrall. Her voice and tone, touched with the slightest of country inflections, pours out like clean, crystalline water.”
Tickets for the show are $10 for students or in advance (go to mollydogproductions.org or Alamosa Home at 630 Main Street, Alamosa).
Tickets are $15 on the day of the show.
The venue for this exciting show is the new Society Hall at 400 Ross Street, Alamosa, CO.
