On Saturday June 11, come experience the unique musical sound of Ronstadt Generations in the KAFM Radio Room at 7 pm.
Ronstadt Generations represents the multi-cultural roots America was founded upon. Dating back five generations in North America, Michael J. Ronstadt, younger brother of Linda Ronstadt, continues the family tradition with his two sons, Michael G. and Petie, along with Josh Hisle, referred to fondly as his adopted son.
These four voices -- all multi-instrumentalists and solo artists in their own right -- bring to life a repertoire that reaches back to the end of the 19th century while continually looking ahead into the 21st, with a rich innovation of original material alongside traditional Southwestern and Mexican songs.
Each comes with the highest credentials, having appeared around the world in performance and on recordings with such diverse artists as Linda Ronstadt, Los Lobos, the Dixie Hummingbirds, Muriel Anderson, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and countless others. Of additional note is Josh’s music being featured in Neil Young’s acclaimed film CSNY/DÉJÀ VU.
"The music of the Ronstadt Generations family band exemplifies splendidly the inextricable relationships of diverse ethnic folk forms that comprise the beautiful tapestry of American folk music," -—Stephanie P. Ledgin, author, DISCOVERING FOLK MUSIC
