Enjoy a live performance from Mirinisa Stewart-Tengco and Clara Byom, an Albuquerque based duo specializing in global folk dance music, including Balkan, Irish, contra and English country.
The Parson Sisters, Mirinisa Stewart-Tengco and Clara Byom, is an Albuquerque based duo specializing in global folk dance music, including Balkan, Irish, contra, and English Country. The New Mexican folk music and dance communities are at the heart of The Parson Sisters' work, as they've been independently active in two important local organizations—New Mexico Folk Music and Dance Society and Southwest International Folk Dance Institute—and hope to encourage a new generation of dancers and musicians to embrace and share these cultural traditions. Albuquerque native Mirinisa plays violin/fiddle in this band, and percussion and Clara plays things with keys—piano and accordion and clarinet. Don’t miss this free performance, the latest in a monthly series of free events in collaboration with AMP Concerts and the Friends for the Public Library.
