Ronstadt Generations y Los Tucsonenses will perform at 2 p.m. Sunday at St. Philip’s in the Hills Episcopal Church in a concert presented by Friends of Music at St. Philip’s.
Representing five generations in North America, Ronstadt Generations continues the family’s musical traditions with Michael J. Ronstadt (younger brother of Linda) and his sons, Michael G. and Petie.
Multi-instrumentalists and solo performers in their own right, they present a repertoire that preserves the traditional Southwestern and Mexican songs of their heritage while offering original material.
New compositions place them on the cutting edge of multiple blended genres, stretching the boundaries of folk, blues, jazz and beyond. Harmonies sung in English and Spanish are accompanied by cello and guitars.
Individually and together, the trio’s worldwide touring and recording credits include such diverse artists as Linda Ronstadt, Los Lobos, Dixie Hummingbirds, David Bromberg, Nydia Rojas, Tish Hinojosa, Muriel Anderson and Mariachi Vargas, to name a few.
In 2012 three veteran musicians — Alex Flores, Sam Eagon and Aaron Emery — came on board with versatile talents to form the six-piece ensemble Ronstadt Generations y Los Tucsonenses (the Tucsonans).
First performing with Ronstadt Generations at a Tucson gig, the sextet cemented the relationship with the recording “Prelude.”
The suggested concert admission is $20 per person.
St. Philip’s is at 4440 N. Campbell Ave. at East River Road. Parking is available in the north parking lot or under the solar covered parking structure on the east side. The office phone is 299-6421.
