Marcos Alvira

When he’s not playing guitar or mandolin, keeping his blog, Valley Bluegrass, maintained, JD’ing his bluegrass radio show or keeping current on his duties as the CBA’s Statewide Activities Vice President, Marcos teaches history to middle grade kids in Merced. Marcos is one of the earliest of our Welcome columnists and his monthly pieces tend to cut to the core of whatever he chooses to write about.
