Melwell (Melody) Romancito will be performing at the Black Mesa Winery Tasting Room in Taos Friday, Nov. 11, 6-9 p.m.
Romancito has performed rock’n’roll, jazz, and blues as a vocalist for many years but it was when she moved to Taos in the mid-1980s that she took up the guitar again as a way to accompany her unique singing style.
Now she plays a nylon string Guild guitar, a small instrument that is unelectrified and only amplified through a microphone. Her singing style has been likened to Sarah Vaughn and June Cristie but she is also known to call on electrified powers of singers like Annie Lennox and David Bowie.
Taos Mesa winery is located near the center of town on Ranchitos Road. Come sit and sip a glass or bottle of some of the best wines available from New Mexico and listen to the Americana, Blues and more from singer-songwriter Romancito.
The room is a great venue for folks who are interested in listening to the music instead of talking over it. They play host to many of the local singer-songwriters and acoustic performers in the area and offer live music on the weekends. They feature an open mic on Tuesdays hosted by Bittersweet Highway from Colorado. Sign up for the open mic is at 5:30 p.m. and the music begins at 6 p.m.
