The second annual local fundraising concert for northern New Mexico acequia associations, Dia de Las Acequias del Norte, was held on Saturday, September 9, at Molycorp Field in Questa, New Mexico.
Musicians included Darren Cordova y Calor, the Dwayne Ortega Band, Los Blue Healers, Hartless, and the UZ Band — to name a few performers from northern New Mexico communities.
Over 250 people attended the concert, while people listened to traditional rancheras by local musicians from around the Questa area.
The Questa Cheer Team was also in attendance, completing community service during the concert, helping at the Questa Fire and EMS’ hamburger stand to benefit local first responders.
Tickets were sold at $10 per person, raising $2,660 for the local acequia associations in northern Taos County.
