Taos, New Mexico: Music in the Plaza

Bone Orchard, Taos, New Mexico

A long-time local band, Bone Orchard, was performing in Taos' plaza when a friend and I walked through. Great sound and presence - a sort of gothic, western, ballad cocktail.




The place was jumping. And skipping.

I noticed in Taos what I've noticed in so many New Mexican communities - there is a vibrant force of gray-haired folk who are, by appearances, making a helluva rich life for themselves.  And these people aren't homogenous in their politics, natal or adopted cultures, backgrounds, or complexion. The qualities they have in common are the achievement of a certain age and a lively interest in .... something, the content of which varies, the key words being "lively" and "interest."

It's pretty cool.

New Mexico isn't your grandmother's Miami.
