Ronstadt Generations on Folk & Beyond, Dec 5

 

RONSTADT GENERATIONS

on Folk & Beyond

Thursday, 5, 2013

4 pm (edt)


In the midst of a national tour, Ronstadt Generations will stop by WTJU Thursday, December 5, for a visit to Folk & Beyond before their concert in downtown Charlottesville that same evening.


Representing five generations in North America, Ronstadt Generations continues the family’s musical traditions with Michael J. Ronstadt (younger brother of Linda) and his sons, Michael G. and Petie. Multi-instrumentalists and solo performers in their own right, they present an exciting repertoire that preserves the traditional Southwestern and Mexican songs of their heritage while offering innovative original material. New compositions place them on the cutting edge of multiple, blended genres, stretching the boundaries of folk, blues, jazz and beyond. Rich harmonies sung in English and Spanish are accompanied by outstanding cello and guitars. Individually and together, Stateside and across the pond, the trio’s worldwide touring and recording credits include such diverse artists as Linda Ronstadt, Los Lobos, Dixie Hummingbirds, David Bromberg, Nydia Rojas, Tish Hinojosa, Muriel Anderson, and Mariachi Vargas, to name a few.
