The 49th Annual Renaissance (virtual) ArtsFaire continues with an entertainment video that includes some of Las Cruces’ most popular entertainers and some of RenFaire’s most beloved characters, like Queen Cherrie (Sherry White) and Ratcatcher Robert (Bob Diven).

David Salcido is the videographer, editor and producer of the video, and Randy Granger and Chris Mitchell serve as co-hosts. It also features the Pied Piper Minstrels from Phoenix and the order of Epona jousters from Fort Collins, Colorado, along with Frosty Locks (Michael Kohn).

The hour-long video will be aired beginning at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 7, and continue with two additional loops until 4 p.m.

The RenFaire online auction continues through Nov. 7.

On Monday, September 14, 2020, the Doña Ana Arts Council recorded their annual Community Arts Awards for digital presentation, rather than the full-fledged ceremony it has become, in order to honor the restrictions on social engagement due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In this scaled-down version, four awards were given for excellence in the Arts. This is the official video produced from those recordings, as assembled by me.

I recently collaborated with the multi-talented Alison Reynolds ( to create a music video for her latest release, Same Old Story. Please check it out and share it with your friends and family. We worked very hard on it and it wasn't easy, being in quarantine, but between us, we made it work. I am very proud of this video and would love to see it get some mileage.
