From the wooded Northern California coast to the welcoming Los Angeles metropolis — from the magical Arizona desert to a packed old Albuquerque rail yard and the surrounding New Mexico vistas — 2014 OneBeat was made for you and me (sorry couldn’t resist).

They met an inspiring array of artists, students, teachers, and community members; taught workshops, led panel discussions; performed in rock clubs, art galleries, and open-air amphitheaters; and made lasting connections that span the globe.
