Colorado Folk Hits Route 66: Lupine Lady Performs Tonight in Amarillo


From rural Eastern Colorado, Lupine Lady brings her pensive, heartfelt folk to The 806 Coffee + Lounge (2812 6th Ave., Amarillo). Don't miss her set tonight — Friday, Feb. 18th — at 9pm CT.

Today on High Plains Morning, we were thrilled to host a songwriter from rural Colorado, just beyond the HPPR listening region. Alex Regeimbal, also known as the folk artist Lupine Lady, stopped in for a chat and played HPPR listeners a few original songs as she passed through the Texas Panhandle. She’s playing a live show at The 806 Coffee + Lounge on Route 66 in Amarillo; the show starts at 9pm CT. Given that she lives “not far from Pueblo, Colorado,” I count this as a first for an in-studio set by a regional artist from the Centennial state.

Hear the full interview and in-studio set on the link at the top of this page.

More about Lupine Lady (from her website): Alex Regeimbal had her debut performance at age 3: singing in her mother's shopping cart. She now performs her original music on bigger stages. The singer-songwriter pairs cheeky lyrics to familiar themes, finding graceful ways to re-inspire folk music traditions. Alex holds a BA in Music and Anthropology from the University of Minnesota - Morris. During her studies she focused on the influence of traditional music in classical music, folk music from around the world, how music operates in society, and how humans ascribe value to art.

Jenny Inzerillo joined HPPR in 2015 as the host of High Plains Morning, our live music program that airs weekdays at 9 am to noon CST. Broadcasting from KJJP in beautiful downtown Amarillo, she helps listeners wake up with inspired music from our region and beyond.
