For the last fifteen years, singer/songwriter/guitarist Todd Tijerina has steadily made a living playing his unique blend of blues, funk, roots-rock and jazz. Rootstime magazine (Belgium) declared that Todd "creates his own style and sound… His manner of guitar playing, singing and songwriting is refreshing and inspiring." Todd's "Nothin' Like the Blues" won the 2011 New Mexico Music Award for Best Blues Song.

Todd Tijerina Band is Burqueño by way of Chicago. The award-winning blues, funk, jazz and roots-rock trio is a veteran of the who’s-who of annual music fests. Singer-songwriter, guitarist and namesake Tijerina wrote a song about voting rights, titled “Get in Line,” that won a Southwestern Chapter of the ACLU of New Mexico songwriting competition in 2012. Tijerina’s recent compositions mirror that focus on social issues. Two such songs are “Tax Breaks for the Rich” and “Who Tells the Story?” A seasoned session guitarist, Tijerina and bandmates Donnie Frank (bass, vocals) and Dave Heidt (drums, vocals) perform two free, all-ages library concerts in our burg this week. On Wednesday, Feb. 5, the band plays a noon gig at Juan Tabo Library (3407 Juan Tabo NE). And on Thursday, Feb. 6, at noon, you’ll find them jamming out at the South Valley Library (3904 Isleta SW).
