Silver String Band 

Silver String Band, Albuquerque’s premier Silver String Band Bfolk/bluegrass/Americana ensemble, was established in August of 2015 as a collaboration between musicians already deeply entrenched in the New Mexico music scene. With a name inspired by the streets of Albuquerque, SSB continues in the steps of local Old Time favorite Peg Leg Joe, who experienced a lineup change in early 2015 and knew they couldn’t just allow themselves to leave behind the truth they’d found through their musical collaboration. Silver String Band gives a nod to their past with some old time references but truly hits their stride playing a combination of originals, traditional bluegrass favorites, and creative covers in the bluegrass style.


Sol de la Noche 
Sol de la Noche is an original band inspired in Latin world music.Diego Manrique singer, songwriter and guitarist, in collaboration with Gabriela Garza interweave classical guitar, traditional and contemporary Latin music. Their influences range from Spanish flamenco guitar, rumba, son Cubano, Colombian porro and cumbia.
