National Headliner - Robert Randolph & the Family Band
Today the Robert Randolph & the Family Band serves as inspiration for musical artists around the world. The band has received renowned recognition for their Got Soul album as it was nominated for a “Best Contemporary Blues Album” at the 2018 GRAMMY Awards. The renowned pedal steel guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, Robert Randolph, led such a cloistered childhood and adolescence that he heard no secular music while growing up. Robert Randolph and the Family Band will ignite the spirit of Downtown Albuquerque as they take the stage on Civic Plaza during Downtown Summerfest.
