We’re going to Glasgow…

We’ve been invited to perform with The Chieftains and Ry Cooperat Celtic Connections in January. The festival is Scotland’s permiere winter music festival. The folks over at Celtic Connections summed things up this way:

“Celtic Connections is delighted to present another first. This time we have persuaded Irish legends, The Chieftains, to invite some very special friends to join them in a musical celebration that links the music of Ireland with Mexico and the southern United States.

Appearing with the band tonight will be revered US musician, producer and composer Ry Cooder and the Mexican five piece Los Cenzontles. In the hands of masters like these you can expect remarkable musicianship rooted in a vibrant tradition, spectacular dance and elegant song.”

Los Cenzontles releases their 18th Album!

We’ve just released our newest album – American Horizons. We teamed with Blues legend Taj Mahal and master guitarist David Hidalgo (Los Lobos) to tell this musical story of immigration, work and the American Dream.
