Enjoy this wonderful Morningsong with Felipe Pérez y Sus Polkeros! Felipe has been playing professionally since 1950, when he started performing in South Texas cantinas at 10 years old. Felipe was inducted into the Conjunto Hall of Fame in 2018. Now in his 80s, Felipe is still performing, playing concerts and dances across the country. We were so impressed with his performances at the Folk School in August that we recruited him to pre-record a set to be livestreamed Morningsong series.
