Arboretum concert series continues with
the Tish Hinojosa Trio on July 20
The Tish Hinojosa Trio will perform on the Amphitheater Stage
at the Arboretum on Thursday, July 20. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
and the show begins at 6:30 p.m. The concert is the third in
the Arboretum's Third
Thursday Music Series.
Tish Hinojosa has become one of the most acclaimed artists
in the contemporary Latin and folk scene. With a purity of voice
she embraces pop, rock, Tejano, and international styles.
Born in San Antonio, the daughter of Mexican immigrants, Tish
Hinojosa developed a borderless approach to music, incorporating
elements of Mexican folk and country with contemporary pop and
rock. Her 1989 debut album, Homeland, immediately put
her on the international musical map. With her next release,
Culture Swing, Hinojosa won the NAIRD Award for Best
Folk Album. Over the eleven subsequent releases, countless tours
of North and South America and Europe, Hinojosa developed a
loyal audience. Her music and social activism on behalf of children,
Latinas, and farm workers have won her numerous awards. In her
latest release, Heart Wide Open, she continues to express
her distinctive musical styles and background.
Other performers in the concert series include Sista Monica
on August 17, Toshi Reagon on September 21, and The Lalo Guerrero
Tribute Concert on October 19. Check the Arboretum
