World-class fiddler and surf guitar master ERIK HOKKANEN plays every first Thursday starting in April 2015. In 1984, at age 21, Erik moved to Austin, TX and joined Gary P. Nunn’s band and toured throughout the Southwest. He was voted a three time winner of the Kerrville Folk Festival Music Awards’ “Instrumentalist of the year” (1993-1995) and was inducted into the Kerville Festival’s Music Hall of Fame in 1996. This year also saw John Travolta dancing to Erik’s fiddle music (“Erik’s Two Step”) in the movie “Michael.”
Known for singing both traditional Mexican folksongs and her own original songs, both in Spanish and English, Hinojosa accompanies herself on guitar, which she plays right-handed although she is naturally lefthanded. Hinojosa has charted twice on the Billboard country charts and has recorded several albums, primarily for Rounder Records.
Her 1992 album Culture Swing won the NAIRD Indie Folk Album of the Year.
