Sacred Grounds brings back The High Desert Playboys, to Ruidoso. Their first performance at Sacred Grounds earned them a dedicated Ruidoso-based fan club in just one performance. Don’t be left out. Get your tickets now.

Hailing from the high desert haunts of Albuquerque, the High Desert Playboys' band bring some of the finest country and americana musicians in New Mexico to Ruidoso. Featuring delicate harmonies, classic country songs, original americana and high energy bluegrass, they are sure to get you up and dancing the night away.

They are lead by singer/songwriter Clark Andrew Libbey, a professional musician with over 27 years experience. One of Albuquerque's best known songwriters, he toured throughout the country promoting his last album "From the Deserts of Ohio". He is joined by Ryan Goodhue, a jazz trained pianist from Boston whose honky tonk sensibilities hearken back to the haunting sounds of long gone wild west. Mikey Hale, one of Albuquerque's finest drummers, rounds out the foundation of the band. Accomplished pedal steel player Bud Melvin, and violinist Kristen Rad, both exceptional soloists, give the band an old school country sound that works for crowds of any age.

Their newest album "Country Songs for Your Trip to Mars", recorded live in the studio, will be released in the summer of 2019. Check out a few previews at:
