It’s March Music Madness as the Alamosa Live Music Association (ALMA) presents four concerts during the month.
Start things off with a trio from the Taos Chamber Music Group playing pieces from Debussy, Prokofieff, Rameau, and Cortese on various combinations of flute, cello and piano. Saturday, March 3, 6pm at Leon Memorial Hall on the corner of Richardson Ave. and 2nd St. on the Adams State College campus in Alamosa. Tickets are $13 for ALMA members, $15 general public, $8 for students, seniors, full-time volunteers and active duty military.
Next, the young women of SHEL travel from Ft. Collins to blow you away with their mostly acoustic mix of folk, rock, Celtic and bluegrass styles. Sunday, March 11, 7 pm, also at Leon Hall. Tickets are $8 for ALMA members, $10 for the general public, $5 for students, seniors, full-time volunteers and active duty military.
Finally, the weekend of Friday, March 30th and Saturday, March 31st, it’s a mini-festival of world-class female singer-songwriters with sounds rooted in roots, folksy, acoustic Americana and bluegrass. Driftwood Fire, an organically creative female fronted group whose vivid songwriting and prodigious playing skills display an uncommon artistry, play Friday, March 30th, 7:30pm, at Vistas restaurant in the stadium at Adams State College. She “concoct(s) a heady cocktail of tender beauty and winsome regret, while employing a voice that’s at once honeyed and raw,” according to NPR, and Sarah Siskind returns to Alamosa Saturday, March 31st, 7:30pm. Sarah brings along her bass virtuoso husband Travis Book, from the Infamous Stringdusters, as well. We’ll be overlooking the lights of Alamosa in Vistas restaurant on the Adams State College campus for this show, too. As a special package deal you can get tickets for both shows for $20 (general public), $16 for ALMA members, $9 for students, seniors, full-time volunteers and active duty military. Tickets for only the Driftwood Fire show on Friday are $10 general public, $8 for ALMA members and $5 for students, seniors, full-time volunteers and active duty military. Tickets for Sarah Siskind and Travis Book’s show alone are $12, $10 and $6.
