Benefit for Kenny



My pal and local music booster Kenny "Canuto" Delgado has done a lot for music in Santa Fe.
In recent years, he's been a member of the Santa Fe Bandstand committee, which brings music to the Plaza every weeknight during the summer.

New Year's Eve 2009!





He's been a contributor to KSFR fund drives. He's pledged money during my shows as well as other music shows he likes.

And most importantly he shows up to concerts and gigs. Even if Stan Ridgway yelled at him once to shut up during a song, Kenny supports music here.

Kenny's been ill lately with cardiac problems. Besides the poor health, there's also crazy medical bills he has to deal with.

Some friends of  his have organized a fundraiser for him. It's going to be 8 p.m. next Friday (January 14) at Milagro.

You'll get your money's worth. Guitar Shorty is the headliner. Also appearing at George Adelo's band White Buffalo and Y Que. It's $20 admission.
