Day 7: Shuler Theater in Raton, NM

We started off the day with a little breakfast at the hotel...

and then drove for almost 3.5 hours to the town of Raton, NM.  I was here about a year ago for a children's concert/talk/outreach for the Shortgrass Music Festival, and it was great to be back!  It's a beautiful little hall that's almost 100 years old.

At 1pm (we're in Mountain Time now), I played for about 400 2nd-5th graders, and then at 7pm played the actual concert.  What a blast!  

For lunch, we had some catfish at a restaurant across the street from an abandoned power plant.

Boy, am I absolutely tired!  What a day.  Tomorrow, we've got just a whole day of driving heading north...toward Colorado!

  1. You sure are making the 'rounds'. Such a beautiful country to explore. It's wonderful that you are stopping in so many small towns and bringing your awesome music to children that might otherwise not get a chance to see/hear it's beauty. I'm sure they love your concerts. Travel safe. Rest when you can. Keep smiling !

  2. Thank you for coming to Raton to perform for us. Please keep coming back.
