Just finished recording my tracks for the new CD to benefit the Farm Labor Organizing Committee. Should be out by the end of September – hopefully in time for the Woody Guthrie Tribute at the Birchmere in Alexandria, VA on October 5th.
Anyway – this new CD, as did the last one (Baldemar Velasquez and the Aguila Negra Band Canciones por la Causa), features singer/songwriter/guitarist Baldemar Velasquez, the president of FLOC, and bajo sexto guitarist, singer, and accordionist extraordinaire Jesse Ponce. Recorded by my favorite engineer Jerry Brown at The Rubber Room in Chapel Hill, NC.
Oh, and thanks, Jesse and Baldemar, for teaching me to play the huapango!
