Adrian Legg is an English guitar player who has been called “impossible to categorize.” He plays custom guitars that are a hybrid of electric and acoustic, and his fingerstyle technique has been highly acclaimed. He plays a mix of bluegrass, Cajun, and country, and
talks with the audience between songs, delivering homespun witticisms mixed with bits of his eccentric philosophy to set an atmosphere for his music and to convey the personal experience behind a particular song.
Our 30th Anniversary season is proud to honor Evelyn Curtis Losack, who along with other Corraleños passionate about music and education founded the Corrales Cultural Arts Council and its flagship program, Music in Corrales. Come join your friends and neighbors in celebrating the vision that has become such a vibrant reality in our community today.
Corrales Cultural Arts Council (CCAC ) recognizes that each child is an individual; that all children are creative; that all children need to succeed. We are committed to fostering a sense of community as well as offering the highest level of musical performance and instruction. Our hope is to provide students of all ages with the skills they need
to enjoy music for a lifetime.
The all-volunteer Corrales Cultural Arts Council (CCAC) created the Music in Corrales series in 1986 as a musical offering to the Corrales community. The series was conceived as a way of preserving New Mexico’s vast musical and cultural heritage, and a way to create a new one as well. What was started by a few dedicated persons who recognized the importance of music to people’s lives, has grown to an organization that brings exceptional musicians to the Historic Old San Ysidro Church where the audience is no longer just neighbors. Local residents and guests from the middle Rio Grande Valley share the evening with visitors from other states and further abroad.
The hope of the CCAC has been that everyone could enjoy a sampling of the world’s finest musical performances in a stunning New Mexican location at affordable prices. Still an all-volunteer group of involved members, we are pleased to see that dream continuing to grow and flourish in such a wonderful way.
