Aug. 19-20
The Zuni Show 2017 takes place at the Scottish Rite Temple, Aug. 19, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Aug. 20, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Zuni is the largest of the pueblos in New Mexico and most of the Zunis’ income is from the sale of their artwork. This second annual show expands exposure to the public, and once again artists will receive 100 percent of the proceeds from their sales. This is a fair trade event. Ethnographic films from 1924 depicting the Zunis’ past will be screened continually in the auditorium of the Scottish Rite facility. For more information, to donate or to volunteer, call Robin Dunlap at 505-660-0981 or visit TheKeshiFoundation.org.

They embody layers of history, identity, expertise, and culture. MIFA is located at 706 Camino Lejo. For more information, visit internationalfolkart.org or call 505-476-1200.

Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder in concert
Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder are performing at the Spencer Theater, 108 Spencer Dr., at 8 p.m. The career of 14-time Grammy Award winner Ricky Skaggs is among the most significant in recent country music history. Among his many statuettes and honors are 12 No. 1 hit singles, scores of Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year awards, International Bluegrass Association and Dove awards, induction into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, the Country Music Hall of Fame and an Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award. And that’s just naming a few of his distinctions. He was credited by Chet Atkins as “single-handedly” saving country music from the onslaught of ‘80s commercialization, leading the way in the neo-traditional music movement. He is a true virtuoso whose path has led him from bluegrass to country and gospel, to deep roots mountain music. Skaggs and his award-winning band Kentucky Thunder return to the Spencer stage in a performance packed with his greatest hits, beautifully blended vocals and blazing fast instrumentals. The evening’s all-star lineup features Skaggs (mandolin), Paul Brewster (tenor vocals, rhythm guitar), Scott Mulvahill (bass, bass vocals), Russ Carson (banjo), Jake Workman (lead guitar), Mike Barnett (fiddle) and Dennis Parker (baritone vocals, guitar).
