Music

Honk, honk, honk your harmonica for fabulous cash prizes in Socorro.

My old pal Ronna Kalish (who was in the Twigs, a great Albuquerque band of yesteryear) sent me a reminder about the Socorro Fest Harmonica Contest on October 9th. There are still a few slots available for your own sloppy, drooly harmonica stylings, should you feel so inclined. You know you want to. I think you’ll win, Harmonica Person. Here’s the blurb:

CALLING ALL HARMONICA PLAYERS! Enter the Socorro Fest Harmonica Contest today. For a $25 entry fee, get the chance to win a $250 first prize, $150 second prize or $100 third prize. Play any musical style for five minutes and WOW the judges. Be part of this very fun music and arts festival on Saturday, October 9th. To enter: call 575-835-8927 or email tourism@socorronm.gov or download a registration form at www.socorrofest.com.

And there’s more. Whether you win or not, Socorro Fest will be happening for two days… with bands, and beer, and wine and food. Here’s the other blurb:

SOCORRO FEST, Friday and Saturday, October eighth and ninth on the historic Socorro Plaza. An easy drive 75 miles south of Albuquerque, Socorro Fest will have a street dance on Friday night, 6 to 10pm with Grammy award winner Terrance Simien and the Zydeco Experience, followed by Socorro’s best variety band, Remedy. Saturday, noon to midnight, features three stages of music highlighted by jam band Asper Kourt, gypsy jazz with Le Chat Lunatique, Louisiana’s Cajun-creole-zydeco band with Terrance Simien, high energy rock with Tangled Up, plus Socorro’s best folk, blues, rock, country and Spanish bands. There will be New Mexico microbreweries and wineries, arts and food vendors, family activities, Free State of Socorro, Enchanted Skies Star Party events, and more!
