Michael Martin is a true artist of San Antonio. He embodies the craft of songwriting, musicianship, and complete devotion to his craft. It is an honor to be playing together again! THIS WEEKEND!!!
Michael Martin is best known around these parts as frontman for the folk-rock band the Infidels, which he formed in the mid-'80s and whose name was inspired by Dylan's 1983 album "Infidels." He's also recorded and toured the world (and appeared on "Late Show With David Letterman") with singer-songwriter Tom Russell. That gig lasted almost four years. Many admire him for his amazing talents as a pen and ink artist. Martin is planning a new solo record. For this one, he's decided to team up with Grammy-winning producer Joe Treviño at Blue Cat Studios, a crossroads of the Tex-Mex scene.
Azul Barrientos is a musician dedicated to observing and conserving the cultural influences and interconnections between Latin America, Africa, Europe, and Mexico. Born in Mexico City, Azul was introduced to Latin America’s traditional and folkloric songs at an early age. This legacy drives her passion for reviving lost cultural traditions and sharing each song’s unique history. Azul moved to San Antonio as a young woman, developing a reputation as a bridge-builder between Mexicana and Chicana cultures. She rejoices in her Latina roots, giving new life to the rhythms and stories of previous generations. For more information, please call Esperanza at 210-228-0201
