Making Art Work: Tish Hinojosa

1 March 2014

Ballroom Marfa was pleased to have musician Tish Hinojosa visit with students from the Marfa International School as part of our Making Art Work program.

Tish Hinojosa is an Austin-based singer whose music is a reflection of her borderland background, combining the sounds of Texas country music with a love of traditional Mexican folk tunes, inviting comparisons to Linda Ronstadt and Townes Van Zandt. She’s recorded a dozen albums — singing in both Spanish and English — since her now-classic 1987 debut, From Taos to Tennessee.

    Generous support for Ballroom Marfa’s education programs is provided by Ballroom Marfa members.

    Special thanks to Mark Brandin, Minerva Lopez, the Marfa International School and Susa Quinn.
