Ronstadt Brothers led by cellist Michael G. and Peter D. Ronstadt (guitar and banjo) along with multifaceted drummer Aaron Emery, present a new and fresh take on the traditional Southwestern and Mexican folk songs and offer innovative original material to those discovering the treasure of roots music.  This musical journey will take you from the past to the present steeped in the Americana vein, carrying forward a sound closely tied in its infancy to their aunt Linda Ronstadt and their father Michael J. Ronstadt and the 5 generations of Ronstadt music from Tucson. Please join them on their journey through the Post-Modern American West as they share a little piece of their home with the world and take a little bit of the world back home with them.


In 2013 we were fortunate enough to have Ronstadt Generations (Michael J and his two sons, Michael G. and Peter), play in the Ugly Mug concert series. That concert, with its wonderful intimate vibe, received the best audience feedback of all the 150 or so shows we have had there before and since. Since their father’s death, Michael G and Peter have tried to carry on in the same spirit, so please make them welcome back to our stage.

“The Ronstadts preserve & redefine a century-plus family tradition, integral to the diverse tapestry of American music.” —Stephanie P Ledgin, author, Discovering Folk Music
