The 2017-2018 Concert Series in Baltimore
March 2, 2018
The Ronstadt Brothers Y Los Tucsonenses
Contemporary Southwestern Folk
Ronstadt Brothers Y Los Tucsonenses (formerly Ronstadt Generations), led by multi-instrumentalists Michael and Petie Ronstadt along with Alex Flores and Aaron Emery, present a new and fresh take on the traditional Southwestern and Mexican folk songs and offer innovative original material to millennials discovering the treasure of roots music. An aural illustration of inception to creation, this musical journey will take you from the past to the present steeped in the Americana vein, carrying forward a sound closely tied in its infancy to their aunt Linda and their father Michael. Join the Ronstadt Brothers on their journey through the Post-Modern American West.
“As a DJ, it goes without saying that I get to hear a lot of different music. The more I think about it, the band is Americana. And possibly the best example of it I can think of: an all-encompassing, fearless, vast, ambitious interpretation of all the sounds we are, packaged into small, rich, textured snapshots we can listen to over and over again”. - Piper LeMoine KOOP-FM Austin, Texas

Baltimore's Own MacArthur Fellow and Gospel-Blues-Jazz Singer
Known as one of Baltimore’s most important and influential artists, Joyce J. Scott is celebrated for her visual arts, but also excels as a gospel/blues/jazz singer, performer, writer and educator. Scott’s art is located in the permanent collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY, the Museum of Art and Design, New York, NY, and the Smithsonian National Museum of American Art, in Washington, D.C. Following a residency in Venice, Joyce Scott, created a 30 years theatre reunion with Kay Lawal as the Thunder Thigh Revue, and exhibited art around the country. A 2012 documentary of her life, An Authentic Life: Joyce J. Scott, was directed by filmmaker Jeannie M. Clark.
Scott has been the recipient of myriad prestigious honors from institutions such as the National Endowment for the Arts, the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, Anonymous Was a Woman, and the American Craft Council. In 1996, Scott was nominated for a National Living Treasure Award, and in 2010, she received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Women’s Caucus for the Arts and became an USA Glasgow Fellow. She was named a 2016 MacArthur Fellow, which resulted in the acclaimed exhibition “Harriet Tubman and Other Truths.”
Her trademark rather risqué humor, incisive storytelling skills, and powerhouse vocals make an evening with Joyce Scott one you will be sure to remember!
