Come scoot your boots across the dance floor with The Rifters as they bring their three-part harmonies and bluegrass desert Americana sound to the stage. This live concert is part of the DALEEE at KTAOS Solar Center weekly Sunday 2-Step Series
Join us for 2-step dance lessons at 4:30pm with Linda & Jerry.
The Rifters are Rod Taylor (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Don Richmond (guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo, pedal steel guitar, dobro, harmonica, vocals), and Jim Bradley (bass, vocals). Putting out more music than it seems should be right for three guys on stage, the Rifters employ a wide range of acoustic and electric instruments, combined with soaring three-part harmonies, to provide a mesmerizing variety of music from driving blue-grama-grass to ethereal desert beauty. The years of playing to the dance crowds in their northern New Mexico homeland has given their music a toe-tapping rhythm that is engaging and undeniable. With a pedigree of bands like Hired Hands, the Rounders, and South by Southwest among them, the Rifters are truly a musical voice of the west, and their region of high desert vistas and mountain majesty.
