Benefit Concert for the Sister Parish Organization http://sisterparish.org/
Sister Parish, Inc. promotes intercultural and ecumenical understanding by establishing linkages between churches in the United States and faith-based communities in Central America. The linkages are based on direct person-to-person contact, with delegates living in each other’s homes and sharing each other’s realities.
Sister Parish participants travel as peacemakers, opting for and identifying with the poor, being one with Christ and thus reflecting the quality gifts of a shared spirit: a deeper faith, a broader vision, a greater understanding of important issues, and new relationships.
Ronstadt Generations represents the multi-cultural roots America was founded upon. Dating back five generations in North America, Michael J. Ronstadt, younger brother of Linda Ronstadt, continues the family tradition with his two sons, Michael G. and Petie.
These three voices -- all multi-instrumentalists and solo artists in their own right -- bring to life a repertoire that reaches back to the end of the 19th century while continually looking ahead into the 21st, with a rich innovation of original material alongside traditional Southwestern and Mexican songs. Each comes with the highest credentials, having appeared around the world in performance and on recordings with such diverse artists as Linda Ronstadt, Los Lobos, the Dixie Hummingbirds, Muriel Anderson, and countless others. Enjoy a fascinating musical journey with Ronstadt Generations. For more info & sound samples check out http://www.ronstadtgenerations.com/#

Fisher & Ronstadt - Bobby Fisher (guitar/songwriter) and Michael G. Ronstadt (cello/guitar/songwriter) are both international touring and studio musicians. When their paths crossed on a project, they realized that they shared a rare musical chemistry. So in spite of their hectic schedules, Bobby and Michael decided to record an album together and meticulously wrote, arranged and recorded these songs over an 18 month period.
