Two Left Feet Blues Festival

Saturday, August 26, 2017   - Sunday, August 27, 2017  

The 2 Left Feet Blues Festival was started several years ago by two true advocates of the blues as a way to engage with other like-minded individuals who shared their passions.

As they got to know the musicians on a personal level they realized how little support—financially and physically—there was for them after a lifetime of performing. They vowed to turn 2 Left Feet into a nonprofit organization in an effort to raise funds to help aging musicians with the ever-increasing costs of health care and support. We also support and educate surrounding communities in the proliferation of Blues music and history.

Below are the organizations that are being supported from the proceeds and donations from the 2016 2 Left Feet Blues Festival.

Mainly Marathon

Friday, May 19, 2017  

As an avid runner, I have been to more races than I can count. After 30 years of running marathons and some directing experience with the White Sands Marathon back in the ’90s I decided it might be worthwhile to host groups of interesting, but low-key marathons. Thus, Mainly Marathons was born.

Many of the ideas for our races were collected during marathons in discussions with fellow club members of the Maniacs and the 50 States.

We are based in southern New Mexico, but our race travels take us all around the nation.
