Juan Manuel Barco Conjunto Concert

Sunday, August 18, 2019

The Washington State Parks Folk and Traditional Arts Program invites the public to the annual International Concerts on the Border Series at Peace Arch Historical State Park on the U.S.- Canadian border in Whatcom County.
Juan Manuel Barco is a legend of conjunto and Tejano music in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Barco was born in Coal Mine, Texas, to a family of migrant farm workers who followed the crop harvests within Texas and to several states in the mid and southwest. Barco taught himself to play the guitar at age 6 and later taught himself to play the bajo sexto and bass guitar. His music incorporates the many styles he heard as his farmworker family traveled from place to place. He now composes his own songs about the migrant experience.
