Latin folk-pop artist to hit LuCille Tack stage
For the Hub City Times
SPENCER – With her signature style of Latin folk-pop, Gina Chavez takes audiences on a high-energy journey through the Americas, blending the passionate sounds and rhythms of the region with tension and grace. Backed by her talented four-piece band, her current tour crisscrosses the country from New York’s Lincoln Center to Salt Lake City, Sante Fe, and Boston, stopping at Spencer’s LuCille Tack Center on Feb. 9 at 7:30 p.m.
With a father of Mexican descent and a mother with Swiss-German ancestry, Chavez’ desire to explore her roots didn’t blossom until young adulthood. She grew up in Austin listening to Michael Jackson, Little Richard, and Lyle Lovett. Her father loved Elvis, 1957 Chevys and the oldies. About the only Spanish word she remembers hearing in the house was “tortilla,” she jokes.
