Sipapu Free Music on the Rocks Concert

The first Music on the Rocks festival twangs up its guitar strings on Saturday August 7, 2010. It’s free for all and family-friendly. Read on for the details, plus a lodging deal if you want to make a weekend of it.

Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort debuts the free festival with live music and a wine tasting by La Chiripada Winery of Dixon, mixed in with a straw bale demonstration, organic farming presentation, and a documentary film on sustainable living. (Only in New Mexico!)

Music on the Rocks runs from 2pm till dark, and here’s the free concert line-up:

  • 2 – 3 pm:  Max Gomez  I heard this Taos folk and rock musician recently, he’s terrific. And frighteningly young to be so good.
  • 3 – 5 pm:  Etc.   That’s not me saying etcetera, that’s the name of the pop and rock band from Boulder.
  • 5 – 7 pm:  John O. Blues Band   Another Boulder band playing blues, rock, funk, and soul

Sipapu is about a 2.5 hour drive from Albuquerque via Santa Fe, 20 miles southeast of Taos. Get directions to Sipapu Ski and Summer Resort.

If you want to make a long weekend of it, a Sipapu lodging deal gives the third night free when you pay for the first two nights. On the weekend of the music festival, the offer is good on Motel Rooms and Lodge Rooms only.

(Cabins, suites, and an RV Park offer other lodging options, but they’re excluded from the third night free deal on the nights of August 6 and 7. )
