Tune in to KUNM on February 4 at 3 pm to get a taste of Lone Piñon live!

Lone Piñon is an acoustic trio from Santa Fe, New Mexico whose music celebrates their region's cultural roots.  Using violin, accordion, guitar, guitarrón, upright bass and harmony vocals in Spanish, English, and Nahuatl, the group has revived and updated the Chicano string band style that once flourished in New Mexico, bringing a devoted and explosive musicianship to Northern New Mexican polkas and chotes, virtuosic Mexican huapango and son calentano, and classic borderlands conjunto.

The musical landscape of New Mexico, like its culture, is beautiful and complex. Lone Piñon is the first of their generation of musicians to embrace the full scope of that complexity.  Onstage, they cluster around a single microphone and play with a fiery intensity, moving seamlessly through several dozens of the dance forms that resonate in their home state. The result is a new sound, rooted in respect for the past and undeniably alive.

The band features three musicians whose careers have woven through a wide spectrum of roots music before converging in 2012 in Northern New Mexican music.  

Jordan Wax (fiddle, accordion, vocals) grew up in Missouri and was traditionally trained by master Ozark fiddler Fred Stoneking and Central Missouri dance fiddler John White. He worked as bandleader and accordionist for a klezmer-punk brass band for years before his work with New Mexican fiddle styles inspired him to travel to Mexico for a 6-month immersion in Mexican huapango fiddling in the Huasteca region of San Luis Potosí. 

Greg Glassman (guitar, vocals ) first engaged his musical education as a clawhammer banjo player with the Gnawa musicians of Essouira, Morroco. Upon returning to North America, he began drumming for experimental jazz and Irish punk outfits, and performing rockabilly and gospel music before traveling to southern Veracruz, to study regional Mexican Son.

Noah Martinez (guitarrón, upright bass) grew up in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque immersed in the music of his community: Onda Chicana, New Mexican rancheras, punk rock, norteño, honky-tonk, Western swing, and the jaranero movement recently arrived from southern Veracruz. He is a descendant of several generations of activists who have worked to protect the agricultural and cultural traditions of Native New Mexicans and he raises sheep and goats on his family's land in the North Valley of Albuquerque.
