Halden Wofford and the Hi-Beams

Halden Wofford and the Hi-Beams’ classic style of honky-tonk country and western swing has a language and culture all to itself, but only takes one quick lesson to learn how to love for a lifetime. SLV audiences will again have the chance to take that lesson as the group plays a free concert, this Sun., Aug. 1 at 6pm in Alamosa’s Cole Park, as the finale of the Alamosa Live Music Association’s Sundays@Six 2010 season.

The echoey twang of the steel guitar, snap of the snare drum, thump of the stand-up bass and rippin’ electric guitar solos mix with Wofford’s distinctive vocals to create a solid sound that is familiar yet purely original. Wofford’s growly, wavering tenor rings out across dive bars, theaters, municipal concerts and festivals, conjuring up images of Hank Williams Sr., Buddy Holly and Bob Wills. (more…)
