“Music and musicians tell great stories through song and memories,” said Cheryl Hinton, director of the Barona Cultural Center & Museum. “We recently interviewed the many musicians on the Barona Indian Reservation and this exhibition offers an engaging look at their stories, their teachers and how they got their start in music.”
The history of music on the Barona Indian Reservation is diverse and rooted in tradition. Contemporary musicians carry on the tuneful tradition through genres of rock, corridos, country-western and folk music. “Rock of Ages” will feature those musicians who have records and CDs, professional musicians, those who play music as a hobby and those who have shared their musical talents with the community during times of sorrow and celebration.
