Live@5 - Sisters Morales - Friday 5/4

Tune in to The Homestretch for a live performance in Studio 2A from this Saturday's Folk Festival headliners, Sisters Morales.

Expatriate Arizonans Lisa and Roberta Morales will bring their band, Sisters Morales, to Tucson from San Antonio, Texas, to perform at the 22nd Annual Tucson Folk Festival. The Morales sisters were born and raised in Tucson surrounded by a blend of musical styles. Since leaving Tucson to pursue their passion for eclectic music full time, Sisters Morales have shared stages with Rodney Crowell, Joe Ely, Merle Haggard, Walter Hyatt, Alan Jackson, Allison Kraus, Patty Loveless, Delbert McClinton, Dale Watson, and many others.

Because their music is considered so eclectic, they have shunned traditional labeling such as folk, country, or Latin and call their style “no borders” music. No Borders music allows for a unique blend of cultures and influences. People in the music business including radio stations have tried to put them into a neat little package – genre-wise – but the truth is, they play it all. They have been called a female Los Lobos combined with Bonnie Raitt and were named best folk/acoustic group by the Houston Press. In addition to Lisa and Roberta Morales, the band includes David Spencer on guitar and Vicente Rodriguez on percussion. They will be helping the crowd celebrate Cinco de Mayo on the Plaza Stage in El Presidio Park at 9 p.m. on Saturday, May 5, 2007.
