Sundays at Six presents The Richmond Brothers in concert at 6 p.m., Sunday, June 30, 2013, in an all-ages community concert in Cole Park in Alamosa. Sundays at Six is a free summer concert series for the entire community organized by the Alamosa Live Music Association (ALMA).
Three sons of Adams State College (now University) music professor Ed Richmond – Jim, Ed, and Don Richmond – will celebrate their common roots and the wide-spreading branches of their musical lives on Sunday evening in Cole Park.
As the children of musical parents, each brother grew their own musical careers. Jim joined national touring acts such as the Tennessee Hat Band, who toured extensively with David Allan Coe. Jim settled down in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area and has played ever since with many Texas troubadours such as Ray Wylie Hubbard, Jack Ingram, Rusty Weir and Tommy Alverson and is currently a part of the popular group Three Fools on Three Stools.
Little brother Don followed a similar early path as brother Jim and played in garage bands with friends, then starting to work in local nightclubs at the age of 15 with such bands as Pope, Harmony Road, the unnamed “Band at the Goalpost” and then Tumbleweed. Tumbleweed opened the 2013 Summerfest on the Rio Grande at the beginning of June. In 1990 Don began playing more in the northern New Mexico music scene of Taos and Santa Fe with bands such as No Strings Attached, Hired Hands, and his current band the Rifters. Don also has grown Howlin’ Dog Records into one of the busiest and most productive studios in the region.
Although having at an equal love for music, brother Ed followed his own path to a career in high-tech manufacturing and computer network administration. He still joins brother Don and lots of other friends in many a late-night sing-along after hours and continued singing on his own.
