Lone Piñon – World Music Wednesday

February 22, 2017 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Lone Piñon is an acoustic trio from Santa Fe, New Mexico whose music celebrates their region’s cultural roots. Using violin, accordion, guitar, guitarrón, upright bass and harmony vocals in Spanish, English, and Nahuatl, the group has revived and updated the Chicano stringband style that once flourished in New Mexico, bringing a devoted and explosive musicianship to Northern New Mexican polkas and chotes, virtuosic Mexican huapango and son calentano, and classic borderlands conjunto.

The musical landscape of New Mexico, like its culture, is beautiful and complex. Lone Piñon is the first of their generation of young musicians to embrace the full scope of that complexity. Onstage, they cluster around a single microphone and play with a fiery intensity, moving seamlessly through several dozens of the dance forms that resonate in their home state. The result is a new sound, rooted in respect for the past and undeniably alive.
