Guitars from the Heart
A Tribute to Gregorio R. Montano Our Dad, Gregorio, loved his heritage and it's music. He enjoyed it so much he created some of his very own pieces. We have wanted to record the music he gave us, and now, with the help of our Lord, we have been able to accomplish it and share it with you. Our Dad was born in New Mexico and lived in the beautiful Sangre De Cristo Mountains in Gallinas, west of Las Vegas. This was the beginning of our Dad's musical talents. Due to difficult times, our Dad went to work in the coal mines of Dawson, New Mexico. He worked in the coal mines for ten years until they closed. He moved his family to Pueblo, Colorado and was employed at Colorado Fuel and Iron, Corp. He loved his family and raised fourteen children and a grandson. As we were growing up, we had the opportunity to accompany our Dad and learn his music. Our Dad became well known for his unique music style. These selections are a small portion of what he left us. Please enjoy the music! Muchas Gracias! Joe and Greg Montano.
