Max Gomez has come a long way. Gomez – a singer/songwriter from Taos – cut his teeth playing at local clubs around Taos and New Mexico. Now, the 25-year-old is going to take center stage at this year’s Taos Solar Music Festival on June 30 and July 1 at Kit Carson Park in Taos.
“I played the side stage a couple years ago,” he explains during a recent phone interview. “I was asked to come back, and it feels really special. I haven’t played in front of my hometown in quite some time. It’ll be special.”
Gomez is only one of the featured guests at this year’s festival. The two-day festival lineup includes Michael Franti and Spearhead, Lyle Lovett, The Del McCoury Band, Sonny Landreth, Mat Kearney, Los Lobos, Cucu Diamantes and Saints of Valory.
