Join us for a Homegrown at Home concert featuring Vigüela. Vigüela is a traditional folk quintet with a commitment to the rural musical traditions of central Spain. The band was established in the mid-1980s, after the Franco regime, by young people who looked to folk culture for a way to channel their creative desires while staying rooted in their local communities. They have been performing internationally for 30 years, and have recorded eight albums, bringing the music of their homeland to the global world music scene.
