Canciónes de la Frontera
A celebration of music from the frontier of Old Mexico will be held at Rancho de la Osa on Saturday night, September 28. The concert will be staged in the oldest continuously occupied building in Arizona with the music provided by members of the Ronstadt family.
Peter Dalton Ronstadt, a fifth-generation Ronstadt in Tucson, nephew of Linda Ronstadt, and great-grandson of Federico Jose Maria Ronstadt, aims to explore the musical heritage of his family. Along with his band of Tucsonans, “The Company” he paints a musical picture of the American Southwest by presenting music from the region, music from Mexico and new songs that draw inspiration from all the elements of his upbringing.
The concert will begin at 7 PM and there will be a steak dinner before the show. For those that choose to stay overnight, guest rooms are available. There is no admission charge. Rancho de la Osa is located near Sasabe, Arizona. 65 miles South of Tucson.
