Highlights of Santa Fe Music Week 2019 will include appearances by Grammy Award winning artists, Ringo Starr, Boz Scaggs and Kacey Musgraves at the Santa Fe Opera. Free mariachi performances will bring culture to life weekdays on the Plaza, 3-4 p.m. and groups including The Red Elvises, Shake Alert, Baracutanga, Stephanie Hatfield and Sim Balkey will take the stage free on the plaza, 5:30-7 p.m. nightly.

Additional Music Week highlights include The Platinum Music Awards, the final two performances of the Santa Fe Opera 2019 season, AMP Railyard concerts and the Mariachi Extravaganza.

“Santa Fe Music Week is the perfect showcase to experience Santa Fe’s yearlong foot thumping and hip swaying music scene, with 10 days that show off the outstanding musicians and fabulous live music venues in our city,” said Executive Director Randy Randall of TOURISM Santa Fe. “It is the best time to get out and enjoy a favorite band or discover a whole new genre.”
