FY5, New American roots music; 7pm at the Cimarron Mercantile

Featuring thoughtful arrangements, strong vocals and musicianship, the band strives to connect to listeners with stories of common struggles and big ideas. www.fy5band.com
Some of the most astonishing performance artists in the world are the young classical musicians that appear in the ShortGrass Music Festival during its September concert weekend. As part of the Festival, these young artists give area students their own private, all-schools concert at the Shuler Theater in Raton, where they play, talk about the music and answer questions. High fives might be exchanged as the audience leaves the auditorium.
