Two nights in New Mexico!

Eilen Jewell leads a tight quartet that blends influences of surf-noir, early blues, classic country, folk, and 1960s era rock ’n’ roll.
For well over a decade, they’ve toured relentlessly, from large festivals to coffeehouses, and shared stages with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Loretta Lynn, Mavis Staples, Wanda Jackson, George Jones, Emmylou Harris, and Blind Boys of Alabama. Eilen’s fans have marveled at her warmth and onstage humor alongside her beautiful songs and fiery performances. In addition to six of her own full-length albums, Jewell has released two albums with her country-gospel side-project, the Sacred Shakers; a tribute album to Loretta Lynn titled Butcher Holler; and a recent album of rare blues covers, Down Hearted Blues.

Doors @ 6:30, show at 7:30, no opener & no intermission. $25 advance, $30 door.
Masks covering nose & mouth required. Capacity has been lowered to accommodate social distancing.

Outreach

NOW AVAILABLE VIRTUALLY! One of our favorite outreach programs places ninth-generation Nigerian drummer Akeem Ayanniyi in schools and libraries, where he engages students in conversation about Africa and forms an ensemble with the kids using the traditional ashiko, djembe and bata drums.

For two decades, Southwest Roots Music has provided free educational outreach activities for more than 20,000 New Mexicans, from grade schoolers to seniors. Activities have included interactive demonstrations and workshops with internationally touring artists, dance lessons, film programs, sustainable cuisine events, and in-school programs. If you would like to arrange free Southwest Roots Music outreach programming in your school or community center, please contact us at ThirstyEarFest@gmail.com.
