Westphal started strumming guitar at the age of 16, inspired by legendary blues artists and musicians Jr. Kimbrough, R. L. Burnside and John Lee Hooker.

His high energy, original and soulful music is rooted in fingerstyle guitar pickin, slide, and electric 12 string. Alex will be performing with his Mancos based band The Blues Connection.  Their music is steeped in Delta Blues, 60’s Psychedelic Rock and Westphal’s songwriting.

An upbeat mix of covers and originals that will have you tapping your feet on and off the dance floor.

Indie-synth artist Ila Minori’s musical journey is one inspired by rising to meet challenges head on and the rewards of self-exploration and growth. That journey has taken her from the clubs of her hometown of San Antonio to touring the US and Europe as well as sharing the stage with the likes of Thurston Moore, Lucinda Williams and Suzanne Vega.
