ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The Western Music Association is an organization that encourages and supports the preservation, performance and composition of historic traditional and contemporary music and poetry of The West. While “Cowboy” music is an important part of the history of Western Music, the stories and lifestyles of the larger populations of Western culture are equally important: settlers, farmers, ranchers, horsemen and women, soldiers and the women who accompanied them into the west, miners, opportunists, gamblers, saloon keepers, school teachers, and other town folk who populated the great American west are all subjects of modern day Western music.

The association will be hosting a convention here in Albuquerque starting next week, November 12-16. It will feature bands like the Red Hot Rhythm Rustlers (above) among other very talented musicians, bands, and performers. There will also be vendors, food, drink, workshops, and much more. For more information and a schedule of events»

The Red Hot Rhythm Rustlers are a nationally recognized group, and were actually just named the 2014 Western Group of the Year. They’re local, and you can catch more of them around Albuquerque and New Mexico. Find out more about the Rustlers here.
