Grammy-winning Los Lobos played Bumbershoot in 1988, the year after they recorded six Ritchie Valens songs for the La Bamba soundtrack. Their cover of “La Bamba” went shooting up the charts, revitalizing the Mexican folk song that had become a Valens classic. Since their Bumbershoot show, they’ve continued touring and have released over ten more albums.
