Lone Piñon


Lone Piñon is an acoustic conjunto from Northern New Mexico whose music celebrates the integrity of their region's cultural roots.  Multi-instrumentalists Noah Martinez and Jordan Wax use the fiddle, bajo quinto, accordions, quinta huapanguera, and bilingual vocals to play a wide spectrum of the traditional music that is at home in New Mexico.  Their performances are a celebration of the vibrant landscape of their home, a complex tapestry of styles that reflect the intercultural history of New Mexico and the musical legacy it has produced. Martinez and Wax formed Lone Piñon in 2014 as a way to explore and strengthen the oldest sounds of traditional Northern New Mexico string music, sounds that had all but disappeared from daily life. Far from the image of quaint, isolated village traditions that is often painted of Northern New Mexico, they discovered a network of related styles that cross state, national, and generational borders.  The duo’s active repertoire reflects this complexity and includes early conjunto duets, Hispanic Texan fiddle styles, New Mexican swing, contemporary New Mexican rancheras, Tohono O'odham fiddling from Arizona, huapangos from the Huasteca, and several regional styles from Michoacán.
