New Mexican trio Lone Piñon is an “orquesta típica,” but they’re far from your average string band. Celebrating the integrity of northern New Mexico’s cultural roots, they’ve revived the sounds of their grandparents’ generation that had all but disappeared. Armed with violins, guitars, accordions, upright bass, vihuela and bilingual vocals, Lone Piñon makes “the music of the border into something living, breathing and absolutely enticing.” –fROOTS Magazine UK. In less than a decade, the conjunto’s fresh repertoire of catchy and compelling traditional music has produced tours across the U.S., four albums, appearances at the Library of Congress, and an award from the American Folklife Center. See Lone Piñon at The Monarch, when time will wind and twist as you’re moved by a song that’s been passed down through generations.
