Hector Anchondo

Raue Center’s Arts on the Green Presents HECTOR ANCHONDO Saturday, August 13, 2022 @ 7:00 PM Ticket Price: General Admission Adult: $20-$30 General Admission Child: $8 RaueNOW Membership Adult: $14-$21 RaueNOW Membership Child: $5.60 BLUES ARTIST AND GUITARIST Anchondo entered the 2020 International Blues Challenge in the solo/duo category and came away with the top prize: winning the solo/duo category. Being a winner in the International Blues Challenge is a prestigious honor. For Anchondo, it was the culmination of over two decades of work. “Winning this feels like a reward for having stuck with music for 24 years,” Anchondo says. “I had flashbacks of all the journeys, sleeping on floors, years of sleeping in the van, overnight drives, no pay, credit card debt for the cause, broken-down vans, the list goes on.” He was serious enough about following his calling to move to Chicago for a year, learning from the old-school blues traditions there. Anchondo is still following his calling to the blues with heart and dedication. With the IBC trophy in hand and 2020 appearances including The Chicago Blues Festival, The Big Blues Bender, and the October Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise adding to his resume, Anchondo continues to build on a solid foundation of hard work and hard touring. In 2017 his release, Roll the Dice, spent 24 weeks on the Roots Music Report after his initial blues releases Young Guns in 2014 and Kicking Up Dust 2012 introduced his blues sound to the Midwest. —— Don’t forget to become a RaueNOW Member to save up to 30% on 2 of your tickets!
