  •     HAWLEY-  On Saturday, May 17th, Harmony Presents Lincoln Center sell-out and toe-tapping, genre-busting Americana Cajun Jazz musicians, The Amigos Band in the underground theater of the Hawley Silk Mill at 7:30 p.m.
        "This one-of-a-kind act delivers daring takes on American standards and original songs that already sound like classics—all tightly arranged to suit the group’s unique mix of alto saxophone, accordion, acoustic guitar, and hollerin' voices," said Jill Carletti, Harmony Presents Creative Director.
         They have appeared in recent performances with Pete Seeger, David Amram, New Orleans’ Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and bluegrass legend Tony Rice.
          Avid students of American culture, The Amigos travel the country in search of unique sounds and collaborations. They revel in genre-crossing, messy history of American music and believe in the importance of keeping these stories and songs alive and accessible to all people.
          In 2013 The Amigos Band were chosen to serve as American cultural ambassadors for the American Music Abroad program by the U.S. Department of State.
