Come see what’s in the air at Pajarito Mountain March 2 during the 65th annual winter celebration Skiesta!
The event includes snow games for all ages, local craft beer and live music featuring Ryan McGarvey.
In a relatively short amount of time, McGarvey has not only gained a national and international fan base, but also admiration from his personal idols.
McGarvey has shared the bill with such top name act’s as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, B.B. King, Joe Bonamassa, Gov’t Mule, The Fabulous Thunderbirds among many others.
His debut CD release “Forward In Reverse” reached the top 20 on the best sellers list on CDBaby.com.
With rave reviews complimenting everything from his fiery guitar chops, which range from delta slide to heavy rock, his unique vocals and songwriting skills, McGarvey’s live shows leave his audiences wanting more.
Absorbing influences from early delta blues to classic hard rock to more contemporary blues/rock artist’s of today, McGarvey was named Guitar Center ‘s “Guitarmaggeddon: Next King Of The Blues” champion of New Mexico in 2006.
In 2007 and 2008, he was named “Blues Act Of The Year” in The Weekly Alibi’s Annual Readers Poll. In 2007, McGarvey took home the New Mexico Music Award for “Blues Song Of The Year” for his song “Cryin’ Over You.”

From 2011-2012, McGarvey and his Band embarked on three very successful European tours to rave reviews. In 2013, he received the prestigiuous award of “Best New Talent” in the notorious Guitar Player Magazine. With a solid rhythm section backing him, McGarvey and his band are embarking on bigger and better things every day…
