DON'T MISS BLUES at the Mineshaft Amphitheater with NMJW! Let's go to the historic town of Madrid for an afternoon of BLUES with some of Northern New Mexico's favorite blues musicians! Remember the good old days, and create some new memories! See old friends, make some new ones!
The summer's wonderful monsoon rains should be over, the temperatures should be more breathable, and fall is on it's way. What better way to celebrate this wonderful time of year than with a fabulous Blues Fest at the Mineshaft. Music is from 2 - 6 pm.
We are meeting early to give us plenty of time for the drive up. There are several restaurants in town for lunch or you can just look around this great throwback to the 70's hippie town
