The Spotlight Concert Series at Trinity Presbyterian Church of Berwyn invites everyone to enjoy a fascinating musical journey with the return of Ronstadt Generations on Saturday, July 8th 2017 from 7 to 9 PM, in a tribute concert to founding band member Michael J. Ronstadt who passed away on August 7, 2016.

Representing five generations in North America, Ronstadt Generations continues the family’s musical traditions.  Started by Michael J. Ronstadt (younger brother of Linda) and his sons, Michael G. and Petie (multi-instrumentalists and solo performers in their own right), they present an exciting repertoire that preserves the traditional Southwestern and Mexican songs of their heritage while offering innovative original material.

New compositions place them on the cutting edge of multiple, blended genres, stretching the boundaries of folk, blues, jazz and beyond. Rich harmonies sung in English and Spanish are accompanied by outstanding cello and guitars. Individually and together, Stateside and across the pond, the trio’s worldwide touring and recording credits include such diverse artists as Linda Ronstadt, Los Lobos, Dixie Hummingbirds, David Bromberg, Nydia Rojas, Tish Hinojosa, Muriel Anderson, and Mariachi Vargas, to name a few.

Audiences will be treated to a family-oriented show featuring the best of what maintains the Ronstadt family as the "First Family of the Southwest."  Joining the band will be the soulful tenor sax of Tucson-based Alex Flores.  Also joining the band on stage will be longtime and local friends of the Ronstadt family including singer-songwriter Craig Bickhardt and drummer Tommy Geddes.
