A down to earth acoustic string band at heart, Sweet Radish’s music ranges from jazz to bluegrass, from folk to blues. Comprised of Alamosa and San Luis Valley residents, Sweet Radish plays for the next in the Alamosa Live Music Association’s (ALMA) Sundays at Six series of free admission concerts in Alamosa’s Cole Park, this Sun., July 10 at 6pm.
“A diverse group of musicians who have one common goal: to make some good music together and share it with those who want to listen,” is how Sweet Radish describe themselves. Attendees in the park can enter to win tickets for rides on the Rio Grande Scenic Railroad’s concert trains.
The Jimmy Stadler Band is slated to bring their brand of rock-n-roll, country and more from Taos to Cole Park Sun., July 17, at 6pm. Tasties hot dogs and the San Luis Valley Brewing Company are scheduled to sell food at the summer Sundays at Six shows all season.
ALMA also helps present music during the Valley Farmers’ Market, in the parking lot near the southeast corner of State Ave. and Main St. in Alamosa. Indie-pop-rock singer/songwriter Eric Shiveley and bass prodigy Wilson Luallen kick off the market this Sat., July 9, from 10am until 1pm.
James McMurtry, a celebrated singer-songwriter who practices a blend of Americana, folk, rock and country, is performing an outdoor concert Sun., July 10, 2pm, at the Medano-Zapata Ranch, three miles south of the Great Sand Dunes National Park on Hwy-150 in Alamosa County, Colo. ALMA is partnering with the ranch on this concert, proceeds of which support the Shriver/Wright Memorial Project, honoring Doug Shriver and Ray Wright, two agriculture and water leaders in the San Luis Valley.
ALMA’s gracious members and business sponsors support the free summer “Sundays @ Six,” concerts and other ALMA events.
