In this anniversary year, we are happy to showcase the Robb Trust's Sixth Annual John Donald Robb, Jr. concert - Música del Corazón: Sin Fronteras. We pay homage to those performers, teachers, field workers, and researchers who have elevated La Música Nuevomexicana to a new level and its rightful place among World Music traditions. Our concert theme is the rediscovery, revitalization, and celebration of four centuries of music making. Music is born from, but not bound to its cultural and ethnic roots. It crosses ethnic and national boundaries freely without passports, visas, or walls. The title Sin Fronteras honors our all inter-cultural and inter-national projects, as well as Bayou Seco's 1986 cassette "No Borders," their declaration of independence and love letter to New Mexico. The work of John Donald Robb and his Archive of Southwestern Music has inspired and informed us all.
Featuring Frank McCullough, Cipriano Vigil, Bayou Seco, and Lone Piñon, this concert represents decades of folk music in New Mexico. It will be preceded by a demonstration from the New Mexico Heritage Society, which will illustrate how stringed instruments are made. We are also thrilled to recognize Professor Enrique Lamadrid for his dedication to musical scholarship with this year's Robb Musical Trust Award.
