Two fantastic shows for audacious music fans getting back into the swing of things

Cecilia Govea-Peña performer known as La Doña

Terry and I have seen two live shows, Jon Craigie at Roaring Camp and Ledisi at Stern Grove.
The opening act at Stern Grove, La Doña (Cecilia Peña-Govea of San Francisco) is doing a free show Saturday, July 17 at 2 p.m. at Yerba Buena Gardens in San Francisco.

I also bought tickets to finally see Fantastic Negrito, a multiple Grammy nominee from Oakland, at Stanford Frost Amphitheatre. It’s Terry’ s birthday, so hopefully we will have as nice a time as we did at Lionel Ritchie, Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan. The Negrito show is produced by SF Jazz, whereas the first season of the new Frost was produced by Golden Voice (talent buyer: Rick Mueller — who I congratulated at Pollstar, February, 2020). July 8, Thursday night.

La Doña has big showcases/festivals in Chicago (Ruidofest) and Austin (Austin City Limits). She is booked by Amy Davidman of TBA Booking, who apparently is good friends with another dozenne of Latin, Amy Blackman who managed Ozomatli for many years. Too much inside beisbol, I know.
