ALAMOSA — Society Hall is thrilled to welcome Ray Bonneville and Seth Walker — two headliner-worthy artists sharing the stage on the same night at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 21.

Bonneville and Walker will each do their own set and will also play together on some songs. Doors at 400 Ross Ave., Alamosa, open at 6:30 p.m. with the show beginning at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $20 and are available online at and in Alamosa at The Green Spot, 711 State Ave. The concert will also stream live on both the Society Hall Facebook page and You-Tube channel.

The Society Hall board is so excited to have these two amazing artists sharing a show at Society Hall.

Bonneville is described as “Bluesy Americana stripped down to its essentials and steeped in a humid southern vibe” which sort of covers it but does not describe the power of the deep groove he delivers through that bluesy grit. An amazing talent on guitar, harp, and vocals, he will transport you to many compelling places along his musical journeys. He also contributed a harp track on the song “Safety Zone” from Eliza Gilkyson's latest CD “Home.”

Whether performing solo or fronting a band, playing electric or acoustic guitar, Bonneville allows space between notes that adds potency to every chord, lick, and lyric. Often called a “song and groove man,” he began writing his own music after two decades working as a studio musician, playing rowdy rooms with blues bands, and living hard. He’s since released nine albums, won Canada’s Juno award and other prestigious honors, earned wide critical acclaim, and garnered an enthusiastic following in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.

Walker has been collecting rabid fans since he appeared on the Americana scene many years ago. Says Society Hall board member and area musician and producer Don Richmond, “I had the opportunity to see Seth and his trio a couple years ago at the Four Corners Folk Fest, and I have to say it was the coolest and most engaging set of music I've seen in a long time — effortless and fluid, cruising through and across stylistic boundaries like they never existed, seemingly focused on one thing — connecting with the people and lifting them up. Don't miss this guy!”

Over the last decade, Walker has become recognized as one of the most revered Americana artists in the United States; a three-dimensional talent who combines a gift for melody and lyric alongside a rich, Gospel-drenched, Southern-inflected voice with a true-blue knack for getting around on the guitar.

In 2022, Walker released, “I Hope I Know,” his eleventh studio album. Produced by Jano Rix of The Wood Brothers, the collection is a beacon of light, written and recorded during the dark times of the pandemic. Each song burns bright with what fans have come to love about Walker: stylistically diverse influences, pure soul in his delivery, contemplative lyrics, and musical movement both geographic and spiritual.

Don't miss one of the most amazing evenings of music Society Hall has ever hosted — Bonneville and Walker sharing the stage at Society Hall, on Sunday, April 21.
