This Saturday's program will feature themed sets centered on travel, planes, trains, states, cities and the radio.
For the remainder of the show we'll focus on Tex Mex or Tejano artists in anticipation of the Portland FolkMusic Society's May 21 concert featuring The Texicana Mamas. The Texicana Mamas are three gifted Latina singer songwriters: Tish Hinojosa, Stephanie Urbina Jones and Patricia Vonne. They all grew up in and around San Antonio, TX and have distinguished solo careers. The Mamas tell emotional stories with their songs. Songs that express their bi-cultural life experiences and strong pride in their collective heritage.
